The pandemic has impacted most businesses across the state of Mississippi. Some businesses that survived are currently in a hiring crisis, unable to fill many of their essential roles. Because of this crisis, companies are faced with challenges of unmet needs, reduced hours of operation, transitioning to a remote, curbside, or delivery service option only, and even the fear of going out of business. Join the conversation as we discuss these pressing matters and highlight programs, incentives, and employment resources.
