In this episode Johnnieanne Hansen, Vice President of the Council of Industry and Harold King, President, discuss the employment crisis and its extreme impact on Hudson Valley manufacturers

With many potential workers remaining on the sidelines for reasons ranging from extended and enhanced benefits to childcare issues and the spread of the Delta Variant, 9.2 million jobs across the nation remain unfilled. For Hudson Valley manufacturers that have seen increased demand for their products the need to attract workers has never been more urgent.

Johnnieanne and Harold talk about this challenge and what some companies are doing to meet it.  They talk about tools the Council of Industry has in place as well as ideas from recruiting experts and the best practices of other employers.
