Middle market companies are the bedrock of the U.S. economy and are creators of sustainable jobs across all industries. However, according to recent research from the National Center for the Middle Market (NCMM), 4 out of 10 companies say the lack of necessary talent is constraining their ability to grow. While large companies have the resources to build effective recruiting processes, and small companies may have fewer needs, the middle market tends to get lost in the shuffle of effective programs and best practices to overcome these challenges. Come hear about the concerns of middle market companies and what can be done to help address the workforce development challenge.
