The Buffalo Niagara Partnership continues to expand our Employ Buffalo Niagara Talent Pipeline Management (TPM) program, connecting hiring employers to regional job seekers.

The Talent Pipeline Management program is a 1-2 year workshop that brings companies with similar job needs together, sharing their common talent pain-points, communicating new industry expectations and addressing long-term needs. The BNP currently hosts three TPM collaborative: Manufacturing, Customer Service and Caring Economy.

Earlier this month, BNP facilitated an Erie 1 BOCES tour of our Manufacturing TPM Collaborative members:  SoPark, Zehnder-Rittling, Tapecon and Cobey. Along with The Service Collaborative of WNY, Inc., Erie 1 BOCES is a Manufacturing Collaborative training partner.

Students from the Welding and Electrical Programs at Erie 1 BOCES toured all four facilities and spoke directly to each company’s President/CEO, Human Resources representatives and employees on the production floor.

 

Giving these students an opportunity to see the workforce in action, and meet potential supervisors and co-workers, provides a special in-person perspective on each company.

As the TPM Program continues to grow, BNP looks forward to connecting more job seekers to our member companies and the exciting careers being offered throughout Buffalo Niagara.
