The New North Business Intelligence Survey discovered a disconnect among some regional business leaders. While 40 percent of them are worried their business will face a disruption by 2020 — 67 percent believed it would come from not having enough employees — four in 10 of them are not doing anything to address the issue.
That’s one vital piece of information Dr. Jamie Lynch of St. Norbert College’s Strategic Research Institute plans to share with business and community leaders at an upcoming event that takes a deeper dive into the study and offers a facilitated discussion on how to navigate the future and hear examples of successful, innovative approaches other companies and organizations are using.
The study’s highlights were originally shared at the New North Summit in early December, and at that time, Lynch said most businesses were using “the same legacy methods they’ve always used in attracting talent.”
At the summit, Lynch and others mentioned an upcoming event that would take in-depth look at the survey results. It will be held from 7:30 to 10 a.m. on Jan. 30 at St. Norbert College in De Pere. People can register for the event here.
