Southeastern Idaho employers are invited to a free Zoom seminar Feb. 23 exploring labor market information and what it can mean for employers. The seminar runs from 9-10 a.m.

Discussion will focus on components of the labor market, current trends in the region, state and the U.S., labor market shortages and a tour of the Department’s labor market information website – lmi.idaho.gov.

In addition, employers will meet Matthew Paskash, Idaho Department of Labor’s new labor economist for southeastern Idaho, covering Bannock, Bear Lake, Bingham, Caribou, Franklin, Oneida and Power counties. He replaces the previous economist, Esther Eke.

Paskash is one of the state’s six regional labor economists who provide information and insight on many economic indicators in support of employers, legislators, college and university staff, economic developers, students, job seekers and more.

This is the second in a series of monthly employer seminars organized by the Idaho Department of Labor’s Pocatello office, featuring a different topic each month.

The event is free and will be held online. To register and receive a Zoom link, contact clinton.renn@labor.idaho.gov or (208) 236-6710 ext. 3644.

The event is sponsored by the Idaho Department of Labor and the Pocatello-Chubbuck Chamber of Commerce.
