Connecting The Dots: Workforce Panel Discussion

march 18, 2024 | 12:45 pm

Finding the right location for corporate relocation, expansion, or start up projects relies heavily on finding the right talent for the company. The emphasis on workforce availability is oft-repeated, because it simply is one of the most important site selection factors. This panel discussion will look at the search for the right workforce from both high-level and shortlist perspectives. What are reliable, as well as emerging methods, to narrow a broad list of locations? And, if you’ve narrowed it down, what resources and partnerships exist in those locations that could help to be the deciding factor? Also included in this session will be a look at impacts of technology on the workforce, and ultimately on site selection decisions.
