At Berks Hearing
Professionals, we're
proud to be named one
of Greater Reading's
Top Entrepreneurs.
Thank you to our
clients and staff.

boomers on the horizon, paired with steady growth, over 7,000 jobs
in our largest industry sector - manufacturing - will be unfilled
by 2025 if we don't start upskilling our current talent pool, and
recruiting heavily to backfill positions. Not to mention, we're up
against a significant talent shortage in healthcare + construction,
as well as IT and engineering-related opportunities.
In 2018, GRCA and the Berks County Workforce Development
Board convened a group of c-level manufacturing decision makers
through the Next Generation Industry Partnership model, and
were not surprised to learn of their two most pressing areas for
action: 1.) Develop the Local Manufacturing Talent Pool with
improved flow of qualified entry-level candidates, and enabling
existing employees to move up and add value; and 2.) Promote
Manufacturing and the Region to Attract New Talent through
efforts to encourage local youth and adults to choose manufacturing
careers and attract outside talent to the region.

Partnership manufacturers confirmed GRCA's commitment to
create a more robust talent attraction movement, it was certainly
not a new area of urgency for us. We know that traditional economic development competitiveness efforts alone will not allow
our community to grow, and that now more than ever - we must
focus our efforts on the talent that will drive economic growth
while fostering the entrepreneurial spirit that has kept Greater
Reading on the map for so many years.
This is the part of the article where you Meet Greater Reading,
literally. Meet Greater Reading, which you will also see branded
as [Meet Greater RDG], is our community's movement. It is our
new identity. It's a brand, but also an identification to the region
we all call home. It's the website potential candidates will go to
when looking into the region. It's the bumper sticker on your
car. It's the talent attraction publication in our local hotel rooms.
It's the gateway to getting to know our area. It's the Instagram
page that showcases our arts and culture, and the stories of our
residents. And most importantly, Meet Greater RDG embraces
