The State of the Economy: Insights to Help Guide Your Organization
A 30-Minute Coffee Break with the Indeed Economist
November 25-26, 2020 • Every hour starting at 9:00 (EST)
The global pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on the Canadian economy. As the second wave of COVID-19 reintroduces government restrictions on certain activities, the progress the labour market was making could come to a halt.

- How the labour market is progressing since the crash earlier this year
- How sectors are responding to the second wave of the pandemic
- Key considerations and trends that will shape 2021
At Indeed, our mission is to help people get jobs. As HR professionals, we know this is part of your mission, too. As a thank you for your participation, following the Coffee Break, attendees will have the opportunity to donate $125 to one of the following charities dedicated to giving people the resources they need to succeed.
