for more than 1,000 new hires across all job descriptions in
the next 10 years; consider that the average manufacturing
employee is 46 years-of-age; consider that, according to

single graduate of Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology
gets hired upon graduation, with many employer requests
left unfilled year-after-year; and, the list goes on and on.
Lancaster County is facing a workforce crisis. Yet, as usual,
Lancaster County employers and educators are working
hard to get ahead of it.
For starters, the Lancaster Chamber's new building and
new business model has set the stage for a renewed
commitment to provide relevant professional development
and training to the incumbent workforce in a space
conducive to learning. From the long-popular New

Managers Academy to some new offerings around Project
Management, Creativity and Innovation, Public Speaking
and Sales Training, opportunities exist to ensure your current
workforce gets the local training they need to succeed
and progress at their jobs. Free Professional Development
Fridays; specialty courses on negotiating, compensation and
other topics; and best practice sharing through Excellence
Exchange, company tours and other methods ensure a full
array of experiences to develop, retain and promote your
employees.
Other programs such as Harrisburg Area Community
College's "Professionally Yours," Millersville University's
"Corporate University" and a long list of adult education
programming at the Career and Technology Center are also
a part of the local offerings designed to assist with workforce
development.
The Workforce Development Board, as its name would
