How to Find the Right Worker in Today’s Central Oregon

 Labor Market


With unemployment levels approaching all-time lows across Central Oregon, it would surprise few to find out that the local labor market is very tight.  The supply of labor is low due to a combination of rapid job growth and retiring baby boomers.


This is a good time to be a worker, but can be a struggle for expanding businesses.  Damon will discuss today’s labor market and provide a few tangible ways that businesses can attract good workers when the supply of labor is low.


Speaker   Damon Runberg

Damon Runberg is a state economist with the Oregon Employment Department covering Central Oregon, the Klamath Basin, and the Columbia River Gorge. He calculates the monthly employment and unemployment estimates for the area’s counties; additionally Damon tracks various economic indicators critical to the region’s economy. He writes prolifically and regularly gives presentations on the state of the local economy.


Damon received his Master of Public Policy from Oregon State University (Corvallis) where he specialized in econometric analysis and natural resource economics. Before that he received his undergraduate from Gonzaga University.
