The word for May’s luncheon is boring and overused.  It’s “Workforce.”  A better word would be “Fear,” because that’s what employers in many sectors of our region’s economy are feeling.

 

  • Fear that their competition will poach another quality employee.
  • Fear that salary hikes will strip profits or push costs too high.
  • Fear that they will be forced to hire subpar talent.
  • Fear that their business will collapse.

 

Workforce fears are real.  The Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce however, is helping, and at May’s “In a Word” luncheon our speakers panel will share facts about local challenges and solutions.  We’ll also let you ask questions.

 

Without naming names — because content is king — our panel rocks.  It includes a hiring innovator from Fairfax County’s largest employer, a local data guru from academia, a development partner who knows inside secrets about trade and industrial workforce solutions, and a chief people officer who knows about labor trends and best practices.

 

Oh, and did we mention that Simon Fowler will again be moderating – with British wittiness?
