The Northeast Minnesota and Duluth Workforce Development Boards, in collaboration with other regional partners, kicked off a Regional Workforce Solutions Series on February 13, 2018 at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth.  The purpose of the Workforce Solutions Series is to help businesses adapt to changes in labor force and declining availability of workers by providing tangible and proven practices related to recruitment and retention. The upcoming sessions are planned for April 18 focusing on recruitment strategies and May 16 on retention.

Both sessions will help businesses adapt to changes in labor force and declining availability of workers by providing tangible solutions to employee recruitment and retention challenges.  Each session will feature key insights from a workforce development experts and a panel of business leaders representing companies from across the state and country who will share their best practices for recruiting and retaining employees.  Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with the presenters and panel members through facilitated Q&A and take away ideas that can be utilized within their own organizations.

The 3rd Northeast Minnesota Workforce Solutions Series will be held Wednesday May 16, 2018 in Grand Rapids (7:30 AM session) and Duluth (12:30 PM session). 

Studies show that employees today move on to a new opportunity about every five years. Now more than ever it’s imperative employers give their employees a reason to stay.
