On the Cover

In a knowledge-driven economy, talent is more global, social and mobile than ever before. Through 2024, Michigan will have more than 811,000 career openings.

This issue also highlights other companies that are investing in culture shifts, apprenticeship programs and tuition reimbursement programs to bolster their talent needs.
