Austin, Texas -- Today, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC), Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives (TCCE), North Texas Commission (NTC), and a growing list of Texas economic development stakeholders launched the Texas Return to Work Initiative, a direct response to meet employer and employee needs during the COVID-19 crisis.
The effort includes a new open-source employer resource guide and a first-of-its-kind series of statewide employer surveys to foster a common understanding of the impact COVID-19 is having on business and the Texas economy.
“Texas employers and employees are hurting but prepared to lead the way through this pandemic,” said Bob Cartwright, Chair of the TAB Return to Work Taskforce, past Chairman of TAB, and President and CEO of Intelligent Compensation. “Public and private stakeholders are asking for a deeper understanding of available resources and deeper data to help navigate the crisis"
This is a call to action to all Texas business owners, trade associations, chambers of Commerce, workforce development organizations, business media, academia, and other engines of the Texas economy to join us by encouraging Texas employers to participate in this process. Our goal is to listen carefully, analyze quickly, and share broadly.”

We encourage TAB members to take a few moments to access the Texas Return to Work Initiative web page, take the survey, utilize the resource guide and be a part of the effort to return to work safely.
