Henderson County is not exempt from the labor shortage sweeping the country.  

This shortage is long-term and based on years of developing trends, says Brittany Brady, president and CEO of the Henderson County Partnership for Economic Development.

The COVID-19 pandemic is not the lone cause of the increasingly complicated situation, but has put a magnifying glass over already existing issues and shifts.  

“The pandemic highlighted workforce trends we’ve been facing for five years or so,” Brady said.  

She believes it will take continued partnerships, workforce training and creative solutions to move forward.
