It’s no secret that manufacturers are facing an unprecedented workforce shortage. Due to aging current employees and a lack of qualified candidates entering the workforce, many companies are feeling the pressure of addressing the workforce issue.
The WNY Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) estimates that there will be 17,000 unfilled manufacturing jobs in our region by 2020.
As a young professional, hearing the word “networking” could very well invoke nervousness or uncertainty. We understand that knowing the right people and making connections can lead to great things yet we may not know where we can begin. Buffalo Niagara 360 (BN360) is the answer.
Business networking has been a tenet of focus for BN360 and continues to be the strongest pillar as we begin our eighth season. Each event opens a door for building lasting relationships with other professionals in the region and helps you connect with the right people.
