Recruiting, hiring and retaining good employees are challenges many employers in Minnesota face in this tight job market. To help employers overcome hiring challenges, the Dakota-Scott Workforce Development Board is hosting Hidden Gems and Talent Pools on Oct. 4.
The workshop will provide insights from experts, connections to local resources, networking opportunities, and much more. The event includes presentations from Traci and Lori Tapani, co-presidents of Wyoming Machine in Stacy, Minn., and Gerry Hoeffner, Personnel Dynamics Consulting, based in Florida, who is returning to speak after his highly-acclaimed presentation at the 2016 Employers of Excellence breakfast.
The event will also include break-out sessions from area employers focused on recruitment, retention and apprenticeships. Additionally, up to 24 local organizations will be part of the event to provide information about their connections to hidden talent pools. The event concludes with the presentation of the 2017 Employers of Excellence Awards.
The Workforce Summit is from 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn, 14201 Nicollet Ave. S., Burnsville.
