Event Description:
Workforce and Workforce Development are a topic of conversation with just about every company in the Goshen area, companies of all sizes.  How do we attract, how do we retain, and how do we grow are all questions every company has dealt with in this competitive employment market.

Mark Melnick and Kyle Hannon of IVY Tech will be on hand to discuss ways in which our local campus is working towards assisting all types of companies with these questions.

Here are some topics that will be covered:
  • Attracting and keeping skilled workers is the biggest challenge facing employers in Elkhart County.
  • Some companies recognize training as an attractive way to retain employees.
  • In particular, apprenticeships can train existing workers and establish a pipeline for new employees.
  • Learn more about the companies using training for retention and about the partnership that is creating a new apprenticeship model.
