How Do You Plan in Uncertain Times?


It’s hard to know what’s coming next when there is so much uncertainty. Who would have predicted that as we enter 2022, we're still talking about COVID-19? We understand the challenge of planning during uncertain times, but still believe that there are definite trends that will impact the workforce and education space in 2022. It’s important to create a plan, yet be flexible as the environment changes. We’re doing our best to stay informed so we can make the most of our resources and continue to provide relevant programs to our partner organizations in support of Michigan’s youth.


One of the key tenets of predicting market trends is to check-in, listen to your employees and have conversations with others in the space as well as your partners. We’ve conducted some initial ideation sessions with our staff and have generated several areas that look to be strong indicators in the workforce and education space. We’d be remiss if we didn’t ask you, our partners and followers, for your input as well.


What do you believe are the key trends that will shape the workforce and education space in 2022?


Your responses don’t need to be overly formal. Simply reply to this email and let us know what you think will be the important considerations for us to be aware of in the workforce and education space.


We will be compiling the information and building a position paper that will outline the key trends shaping the workforce and education space throughout 2022. Look for more information as we will continue to share our results within this newsletter, on our website at www.ouryouthsolutions.org, and on our social media channels: LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
