These shifts in behavior and work expectations have exacerbated the challenges of an already tight candidate market and highlighted the need to make your recruiting practices as competitive as possible.  Adam Crowe with Larimer County Economic and Workforce Development will share insights on the current job market, changing worker preferences and how you can recruit more candidates for your open positions
