You're Invited to the 

Mid-Valley Business & Industry Resource Alliance Workforce Challenges Event


As many companies struggle to hire and retain workers, we will discuss the current economic situation as well as near and long-term workforce solutions. We'll ask such questions as:

How can companies leverage technology to attract a younger workforce?

What is happening in the employment marketplace?

What solutions have businesses discovered internally to help?

What programs and resources are available to assist regional businesses?
