This is part 1 in a three-part virtual CEO Roundtable. The series, ND Workforce: A Changing Landscape, breaks down into three sections focusing on different impacts to the workforce - data trends, employment law, and the human element. Given the current situation, to remain safe and also cognizant of people's full schedules, we have slated this upcoming CEO Roundtable to be a virtual series.
June 9 - Section 1
: 30,000ft view of ND's Labor Market
June 16 - Section 2: The Roller-Coaster Ride of Wage and Hour Developments
June 23 - Section 3: Returning to Normal in the Office - Oh, and could someone tell me what that even means?
In one month, COVID-19 took North Dakota's steady economy and careened it down an uncertain path. March's saying "in like a lamb, out like a lion" shifted to "in like a bull, out like a bear" especially when looking at the grim unemployment numbers and oil prices. As businesses implemented furloughs and temporary closings, federal legislation passed that assisted laid-off workers with stimulus checks and state and federal unemployment insurance benefits. March boasted of a 2.7% unemployment rate, continually one of the lowest in the nation. The number of unemployed in North Dakota grew from 10,807 to 37,311 in April, with an unemployment rate of 9.2%.
