Finding the right people for your workforce is crucial to the success of your business. And that challenge gets tougher as the wave of baby boomer retirements accelerates and a skills gap continues to bedevil many employers. That's why your Chamber is committed to providing resources and tools to help member companies recruit and retain qualified workers. Following are several initiatives to assist you with workforce challenges:
