Indiana Chamber releases survey results

Posted: Thursday, July 2, 2015

Submitted by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce

Economic prospects are bright. Fifty-eight percent of respondents expect the size of their workforce to increase in the next 12 to 24 months and another 38% anticipate stable employee counts. These mirror 2014 numbers (57% and 39%, respectively) and reinforce a shift from 2013 when just 36% foresaw growth and 59% looked at no changes in employee numbers... Read More...

Here are items to be aware of if you suspect your child is using:

Poor hygiene-not caring about appearance; Outward appearance is huge among teenagers and they are constantly comparing themselves to others, so if you notice that your child starts to not care, be aware; Shows lack of caring about activities that used to be important... Read More...
