A promising career path and a company with a promising new employee, new trainings are emerging to help solve workforce challenges. In the final part of my three-part series on workforce, we look at how we move forward given the tremendous challenges facing businesses.

Many sources predict that 40% of our workforce will be freelance in the coming years. This is part 2 of my 3-part series on Workforce.

The “gig economy” is changing the face of work in the U.S. Currently about 1/3 of workers are doing part or all of their work from home. This number is expected to rise, and as I said at the top of the show, 40% of all workforce will likely be freelancers in the coming years.

Workforce is a major challenge facing businesses across the country and we are no exception.

I can think of no topic that has received more attention from our business community than workforce. In fact, I would say it is what I spend more of my working time on than anything. Because of that, this is something I’ve really wanted to focus on in this show. This is the first of a three-part series on workforce.

The history of Memorial Day is an interesting story that has roots right here in the heartland.

I’m Shad Burner, Vice President of Business Development with the Cape Chamber. Let’s talk Business.
Well, today, on Memorial Day, let’s not talk business. Instead, I’d love to share a little history.

Cape Chamber

The Cape Chamber has approximately 1,500 representatives with nearly 1,000 area business members.

I don’t often talk specifically about the Chamber on this show, but as our membership drive wraps up this week, I felt it was appropriate to share a few things.
