Enabling Buffalo Niagara’s Workforce to Change with the Times

Buffalo Niagara employers say finding workers who are ready to step into jobs is one of their most pressing challenges, year in and year out.  Despite a robust network of colleges and universities and the dated notion that “there are no jobs out there,” the problem of finding skilled and reliable talent is a very real challenge for employers across the region.

Thousands of people in looking for work in Buffalo Niagara, but hundreds of employers still have difficulty filling vacant jobs.  

The good news?  Several programs are in place to help Buffalo Niagara build the workforce necessary for the region to succeed in 2014, 2015, and beyond.  

The Buffalo Niagara Partnership – the region’s privately-funded economic development organization and chamber of commerce- polls employers to understand their workforce needs and then works to get programs in place to address them.  On May 10th, the Partnership will convene several area leaders to discuss strategies for building Buffalo Niagara’s workforce of the future:

 

 
In a closed-to-the-media session, each will outline the status of current initiatives to ensure employers’ workforce needs are met and how the business community, economic development agencies and government leaders are working together work together to find answers to the workforce pipeline question.  Each speaker will also be available to attendees via an interactive Q&A session to follow the discussion. 

Human resource professionals, company leaders, and recruiters are all encouraged to attend.
