  • The Texas Association of Business and other program partners assemble a Return to Work Task Force to help Texans get back to work promptly and safely

    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 recently launched a Texas Return to Work Initiative, a direct response to meet employer and employee needs during the COVID-19 crisis. 

    The effort includes an 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. 

    Supported by non-profit USTomorrow and its partners Polco (a digital research and engagement platform) and National Research Center, the initiative is a first step toward providing public officials, business and community leaders, and the general public a current, cohesive view of the rapidly developing pandemic’s impact on the Texas economy.

    The resource guide is open source and will be updated periodically with audience recommendations. Initial survey results will be published in August with a full report and next steps announced later this summer. To learn more about this initiative, read the Return to Work guide here or visit returntoworktx.org
