Job market analysists are seeing sharp shifts in the workforce. Employers are looking for new employees. Employees are departing old positions and moving into new ones – or leaving the job market altogether. Whether its the “great reshuffle,” the “great resignation” or a watershed moment in the labor market, the measurable shift was the topic of the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research’s next Public Policy Forum on Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2022 at Noon (EST) on Zoom.

See the video, presentations and new resources to help shape responsiveness to labor market needs and policies to address them.
