After a two-year hiatus, it was good to see familiar faces in the crowd at River City Bank’s 2022 Business Outlook event at the newly renovated Sacramento Convention Center. With a lineup that included dynamic speakers, Jess Bushey, Market Vice President at Roth Staffing, and leading economist Christopher Thornberg, Ph.D. founder of Beacon Economics LLC, attendees got an insider’s view on recruiting best practices and what might be in store for the economy. Jess spoke on winning strategies for hiring top talent in a competitive environment. She also touched on adjusting expectations for new candidates while creating a company culture that retains current employees. Dr. Thornberg taught a master class in interest rates, inflation, and their effects on the U.S. and local economies. Notably, he spoke on the substantial gap between a dominant media and political narrative and the reality of financial and real estate markets, inflation, and interest rates, among other related topics.
As always, River City Bank’s Business Outlook event provided a place to connect, share ideas, and be inspired by one another. We look forward to another successful event in 2023.
