The pandemic has been a catalyst for significant workplace change and business disruption. Economists call it the Great Resignation. Orders are on backlog, revenues slowed, repair shops can’t repair and restaurants are hobbling along. “We’re Hiring” signs are visible everywhere and in Santa Fe there are more job openings than candidates (0.89 for every job).


Join SCORE leadership experts Jim Maloney and Bob Vidal as they dig into hiring challenges including why the end of government relief funds will not bring back applicants and how increasing wages and benefits isn’t a long term solution.
