"What do we need to do differently? We're not trying to fix the workers. We have to fix the work, and we have to fix the system." – Jill Rizika

Recent news about a strong job market may sound like great news for workers. But in Ohio, even as the economy appears to be rebounding, vacancies and high turnover remain. In a recent survey of over 750 local employers by the Fund for our Economic Future, nearly 80% confirmed that they are struggling to not only attract, but also retain employees.

The COVID pandemic has ushered in a new reality for workers, especially women, and access to economic opportunity has become about more than just going to work. A worker's ability to succeed in their job is determined by a supporting framework of opportunities--called "social determinants of work." This includes reliable transportation, dependable childcare, paid leave, and access to healthcare--to name a few.

Join us at the City Club to hear from a team of panelists as they discuss these obstacles to successful employment, and how employers can reevaluate their policies to ensure all workers can thrive in their jobs.

The livestream will be available beginning at 12:00pm. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
