With the challenges of 2020, the Charleston region has experienced a drastic swing from record high to record low unemployment. We are now faced with a new challenge – how to get people back to work and advance economic recovery. This requires evaluating where the jobs will be and what skills they will need.
In this webinar, Tina Wirth, Chamber Senior VP of Talent Advancement, and Jacki Renegar, Center for Business Research Director discuss the Chamber’s new release, Talent 2020 & Beyond, a report focused on a skills-first approach to meeting our region’s workforce needs.
They reviewed the latest workforce data and discussed the importance of focusing on skills to ensure a diverse and equitable workforce.
