This insight gained by technological incorporate allowed Good Morning Schaumburg to sample the audience to understand how many people had children around the age of eight years old, and proposed that their children may work in a job, or industry, that has not yet been invented. Norington-Reaves stated that 65% of today’s grade school children who will work in jobs that haven’t been invented yet.
Beckage built on the evidence and data collected, shared, during the Chicago Cook County Workforce Partnership by addressing best practices and methods to attract the best talent at the most affordable cost. One shocking estimation is that employers lose $14,000 for every job that remains open for longer than three months.
