Workforce. It is not an overstatement to write that almost every conversation I have
with businesspeople mentions this issue as a top concern.
Whether it's finding the right talent with the necessary skills, providing training
and support for current employees to grow, connecting to opportunities with our
educational institutions or just being aware of the myriad of programs and services
addressing the issue, Lancaster County businesspeople find themselves continually
challenged by all-things-workforce.
And the Chamber wants to do its part to help. From professional development to
showcasing best practices; from on-line assessments and training (Skill Up Lancaster)
to a Job Board to promote your hiring needs; and from advancing and supporting
local, state and federal policies that address workforce issues to ensuring our
educational curriculum is relevant to future needs, we are committed to addressing
this issue from multiple angles.
In this edition of Thriving!, we shine the spotlight on some of the many issues
impacting our local workforce. I encourage you to give it a read. And I encourage
you to keep the information flowing by letting us know how you're addressing this
issue within your own workplace.
Working together we hope to turn today's workforce challenges into tomorrow's
workforce solutions. Please be part of the conversation.
Sincerely,

Lancaster Thriving!
