How can Minnesota’s west central region solve the workforce shortage? Can you help?
Greetings from your Regional Workforce Alliance Business Partners:
At an employer summit in Detroit Lakes in April, event organizers heard very clearly that employers want to network with peers, hear about workforce solutions, and contribute ideas to mitigate the labor issues in our region today – and tomorrow.
You are invited to attend a Partnership for Workforce Solutions meeting, on Wednesday, June 20 from 10 a.m. – 12:30 pm. in Moorhead – lunch included.
This meeting is intended to engage business leaders in making real plans to create workforce solutions, and in turn, engage the public/private workforce system to align resources and policy behind business-driven plans.
While these may sound like long-term goals, we are committed to specific and immediate take-aways from this partnership meeting, including:
- An opportunity to network with peers to discuss and plan in a roundtable format
- Hear about some of the best practices occurring in your region and elsewhere for recruitment, retention, and creating a welcoming workplace (to name a few!)
- Have your voice heard in setting priorities for action
- Create solutions at the company, local and regional level.
This meeting is the first of its kind in our region, and we hope you are able to attend!
