The Trump administration has promised to train all workers in “a business-as-usual” approach to job creation and growth.
But some are concerned that a lack of clear guidance on what businesses should and shouldn’t do could make it difficult for businesses to stay on track.
A report from the Business Roundtable on Tuesday said that while it’s common to talk about “business-as, wherever-you-go” policies, the Trump Administration has largely failed to address what should happen in an environment of economic uncertainty.
Businesses should be encouraged to stay focused on their businesses, said the report.
“Businesses can’t go it alone, but they should take steps to make sure they’re building the business in the future,” said the business group’s president, Karen DeYoung.
The report also pointed to a number of ways that businesses can make progress.
Companies can start a new business, or make investments in the existing businesses, or even hire workers directly.
There are also steps businesses can take to diversify their business models, create new jobs, and help workers feel more connected to their local community.
“When it comes to business-to-business, businesses have a choice,” the report states.
“But what is clear is that business leaders need to do more to get their employees to understand what’s at stake in their business decisions.
And that includes providing guidance on how to respond to the most difficult times.”
It’s an issue that many businesses are facing.
For example, the Associated Press reported in January that the National Restaurant Association reported that as many as 80% of its 1,600 members said they had experienced “a major disruption” in their businesses because of the economic uncertainty of the last few years.
The Trump administration is expected to release a plan to create more job creation by the end of the year.
