A year ago, Buffalo Niagara Partnership members said finding and recruiting talent was their No. 1 concern.
That issue was an afterthought in this year’s annual Partnership survey of members. The long-term economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic led their list of concerns.
“Understandably, Covid-19 has flipped employers’ historical concerns on their head,” said Dottie Gallagher, the Partnership’s president and CEO.
“We continue to see the lasting impacts of the ongoing pandemic in not only current business operations, but in how employers view their futures to everything from investments and hiring to office space needs,” she said.
