As 2021 draws to a close, please join us to review the past year and look ahead to 2022.

This session will focus on the greatest constraints that businesses faced in 2021: supply chain issues and labor force challenges. We will discuss what normalization looks like in 2022 and which trends will – or will not – persist next year. This session will sift through the often-conflicting maze of economic information and headlines to provide a data-driven approach that will carry your business into the future.
