"When you think about what employers have to do differently, to recruit, attract and advertise, sell our product, create our product that folks want, we have to look at things differently," Murphy said. "From an education standpoint, are we teaching a little differently than in years past? I'm sure we are."

The three day celebration continues with more tours of different Indiana corporations. The list includes American Fuji Seal in Jeffersonville and Integrity Sign Solutions in New Albany.
