Workforce Symposium

By Catherine MacGowan

Larimer County Workforce

What keep's you up at night?
Leading Edge Strategies to Help Business Find, Retain, and Protect Their Talent Workforce Symposium 2013
What Keeps You Up At Night? The LCWC Wants To Help You Rest Easy. Are you losing sleep over Healthcare Reform and Workforce concerns? To keep up with the needs of our local business community, Larimer County Workforce Center’s (LCWC) Business and Economic Development Team as well as other economic development organizations regularly ask business leaders “What Keeps You Up At Night?” Responses consistently fall into two categories: Healthcare Reform and Workforce. Workforce is further broken down into difficulty recruiting candidates with specific technical skills, and training and supporting existing employees. The LCWC has responded with Workforce Symposium 2013, a half-day training event designed around these topics. Business owners, managers, HR professionals, and supervisors will learn leading edge strategies to help find, retain, and protect their talent. This event will have presentations by some of our region’s most credible experts, including information on the future of resourcing in Larimer County’s new employment economy, lean HR strategies so you can focus on your core business, 2014 business healthcare strategies, Connect for Health Colorado insurance marketplace overview, eradicating incivility, and the science of hiring for fit. Through this event, the LCWC is committed to providing tangible tools and actionable strategies for your business so that you can sleep at night. The Workforce Symposium is just one of the innovative services offered by the LCWC. In fact, if you do business in Larimer County, the LCWC wants to assist you with finding and supporting good employees. If you are planning to grow your business, currently recruiting, wanting to train your employees, or decreasing the size of your workforce, the LCWC offers resources, services, and intelligence to facilitate these processes. Here’s an example of how we currently do that: In 2013, the LCWC provided technical training funds to 75 incumbent workers from 15 local businesses in order to reinforce global competitiveness among Advanced Manufacturing, IT, and STEM industries in Northern Colorado. Would you like another example? On average, the LCWC places 200 youth, entry level, and professional interns with local businesses each year, covering all wages and workers’ compensation. 114 of these indispensable workers were hired upon completion of the internship or before in 2012. Here’s one more: In 2013, the LCWC facilitated pre-hire skill assessments for 766 candidates being considered by local businesses. In short, we’ll help you get a good night’s sleep. Workforce Symposium 2013 will be held September 11, 8:00am-11:30am at the Embassy Suites in Loveland, CO. The LCWC’s Workforce Symposium 2013 training event will run concurrent with NCBR’s full day of Bixpo events.
