2017 Solving the Talent Challenge

Registration for this event has closed. Walkups will not be available at the door.

Not enough qualified applicants for job openings?

High cost of on-boarding?

Lack of resources to help upskill existing workers?

Are these problems your industry is facing? 

Our local manufacturers have begun to tackle these complex issues and turn the problem around. Join us to find out how these insights can be applied to your industry.

This event will introduce attendees to a new process for sourcing, training, and retaining a skilled workforce that builds on the proven principles of supply chain management.
