NAWB to Host February 20 Conversation on Workforce Boards Meeting the Needs of Business and Industry
Feb 18, 2014
The National Association of Workforce Boards provides this advisory on a February 20 conversation:
How can workforce boards have more impact in meeting the needs of business and industry? At a time when labor supply is high, workforce professionals are uniquely positioned to understand the available talent in their communities as well as where gaps in training and skills exist. Creating conversations between policymakers, economic development, educational providers, and employers to help them understand not only the current landscape, but also to plan what will be needed in the future workforce is one way to leverage existing talent and create programs that lead to upskilled workers, competitive employers, and ultimately, economic growth in our communities. Join NAWB CEO Ron Painter for a fast-paced conversation with Rebekah Kowalski, Vice President of ManpowerGroup’s Global Strategic Workforce Consulting Practice, on Thursday, February 20th at 1:00 PM EST, as part of our Forum 2014 radio show series.
February 20 (1:30 to 1:30 p.m., Eastern) podcast details.
