A special forum and networking luncheon event is planned in support of the manufacturing heroes in our region and their efforts to attain, develop, and retain employees. The program will be held on October 9, 2018 from 9:00am-1:30pm at the DuBois Country Club. The focus of the morning will be on assessing and enhancing company culture; generational diversity as a competitive advantage; developing internal career pathways, onboarding best practices, and a discussion of the Work Institute’s 2018 Retention Report. We’ll also hear from Penn United, a company that has been innovative with attracting, developing, and retaining employees. The program is presented by NWIRC, IMC, Greater DuBois Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development, and Workforce Solutions for North Central PA. Cost is $25 and we encourage company owners, executives, human resource professionals, and anyone with a commitment to manufacturing in the region to attend. Register at www.nwirc.org/events.
