Webinar: MICHauto and CAR Present: The Long-Term Impact of COVID-19 on the Automotive Talent Pipeline
September 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join MICHauto and the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) for an hour-long session discussing the industry’s perspective on this disruption and the State of Michigan’s workforce development response. Register today for the session on Thursday, Sept. 24 at noon.
Finding and retaining top talent is an ongoing challenge for the Michigan automotive and mobility industry. It is predicted that the COVID-19 global pandemic will add further disruption due to its impact on the talent pipeline. Approximately 25% of college students are reconsidering their enrollment plans this fall, while 40% of high school graduates, who had planned on attending a four-year college or university, are no longer expected to enroll at these institutions. Decreases in 2020 postsecondary enrollment is likely to impact the future talent pool for Michigan businesses.
