In what remains one of, if not the tightest, labor markets in history making sure our teams are well composed is one of the hardest challenges the business community is facing right now.  Across industries, making sure the right people are on the bus is in many cases the pivotal value proposition in the eyes of our customers right now.

In short, our employees demonstrate our business priorities even in this difficult environment--simply put, hiring and nurturing good people has never been more important within our visitor or regional economy.  In practice, we're most likely spending more time than ever on our teams and we should be--that's a post-pandemic change that likely will never go backward.
