Description

We heard you & your voice matters!

We got your input!

Now it's time to put actions to your effort!

Last Fall, local employers said "Put us, as employers only, in a room and let us figure out what we are struggling with and what we need" On June 21, 2017 we gave employers, including their Human Resources staff, the chance to attend a session just for them. No one else was in that room except People Minded Business, who facilitated the open discuss around the employers priorities and challenges in the "employment battle" all businesses face.

The information from that session has now been synthesized and shared with everyone that attended the June session. We now invite employers/Senior HR managers to return to a Bigger Room that will have key government officials, community organizations and educators attending as well.

Listed below are the four most common and pressing challenges identified at Session 1, in June 2017:

1. How might we work collectively to attract, recruit and retain qualified candidates to our region?
2. How might we work collectively to build a more skilled (soft skills and hard skills) workforce?
3. How might we work collectively to clarify, simplify, streamline and address regulations in innovative ways?
4. How might we create a greater understanding of the benefits of doing business in our region?

To access the report from the June session, please click HERE.

It is now time to put "actions" into the Regional Action Plan being developed that will address the priority employment issues you are facing.

On Wednesday, September 27, 2017, ECOTB in partnership with the HRPA Quinte and District Chapter will be holding the second session facilitated by People Minded Business who will use an interactive process that involves collective thinking, ideating and action planning for each of the four challenges. You will have the opportunity to drive the development of the actions. Your input will help identify ideas, resources, talent, timelines and priorities to tackle the identified common and pressing workforce challenges across the region.

Organized by ECOTB and the HRPA Quinte and District Chapter, and supported by all local Economic Development offices and Chambers of Commerce, this is your chance as employers to drive the solutions needed to address your employment issues.

Employers, big or small, we need to hear your voice. From CEO to HR Staff to Sole Proprietors!

Be prepared to answer:

"What do I need to do as (an employer, Chamber Commerce, Economic Development Officer etc.) to help make this happen, and be part of the solution?”

“At minimum, what can I offer right now towards achieving progress?”

When: Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Where: Travelodge Belleville

Time: 8:00 am to 1:00 pm

Breakfast and Lunch will be provided. Dietary and allergy concerns can be noted with your registration.

We strongly encourage you to attend and become a part of the solution.
