Our panel shares their insights and expertise on the state of Houston — its economy, workforce, industry trends and change prompted by recent global events.

The Future of Houston Workforce

Recent global events have had a profound impact on our Houston economy and changed the way we do business.

The program seeks to deliver a wakeup call to business owners on what Houston needs and how the “Great Resignation” is impacting real estate and education. Hear how medium sized businesses have underinvested in resources and human capital and what that means for Houston. The program will help frame how employers think about the workplace, and how businesses attract and retain people and preserve culture.

Leading the discussion are three industry experts from a local university, a commercial real estate firm and a Houston business advocacy group.
