About this Event

About this Event

Algoma's Workforce Planning Summit is hosted by the Algoma Workforce Investment Corporation (AWIC) and will bring together local employers and community stakeholders with subject matter experts to listen and learn from each other on addressing workforce issues and opportunities in Algoma. The event will feature a keynote presentation by Michelle Schurter along with panel discussions and presentations with local employers and subject matter experts.

Keynote Presentation: Michelle Schurter

Michelle Schurter is CEO and Founder of Millennial Strategist, www.millennialstrategist.com. She’s a leadership expert who provides practical, savvy advice to organizations to help attract, lead and grow their millennial employees in a cross generational workforce.

Introducing...the Gen LensTM

Geared to employers, company owners and organization leaders, Michelle’s keynote presentation is offered as a kick-starter on the opportunities and challenges of a multi-generational workplace.

  • Why are we talking about generations at work?
  • What’s underneath the challenging trends between people across different generations?
  • Where is this disconnect coming from?
  • How can we shift our thinking, then move to action to leverage the talent from all generations?

The Gen LensTM will give generational lens to employers in Algoma through which they can view their own challenges and opportunities as they move from an older workforce to a younger one.

Other areas of conversation:

  • Attraction and Retention strategies for local employers.
  • Managing the knowledge transfer as an aging workforce retires.
  • Update on Immigration in Algoma
