Future Workforce: Minnesota Demographics and What Employers Need to Know

Before we had ever heard of COVID-19, employers were already confronting the ripple effects of long-term demographic trends that produced talent shortages and missing skillsets within the available workforce. Now with COVID-19 and social issues buffeting businesses, owners and executives are left to wonder what the labor force will look like in the coming years and what changes they need to make preparations for the future.

EBITDA Partners is pleased to host a special event featuring our guest, Susan Brower, Demographer for the State of Minnesota and Director of the MN State Demographic Center. Susan will shed light on changes that will impact businesses, providing insights based on long-term projections of population and labor force changes.

Why Attend?

This information is vital to those who need to:

  • Develop strategies to find, get, and keep the best possible talent and develop a leadership bench for succession.
  • Understand the risks and opportunities associated with the future available labor pool.
  • Understand how the risks and opportunities will impact the long-term sustainability of the business and a possible exit strategy.
  • And, from this, make decisions about strategic investments for workforce development, process efficiency, and automation.
