The Thurston County Chamber invites the community to attend the Thurston County Chamber’s August Forum on Wednesday, August 18 at 11:30 a.m. at the Olympia Hotel at Capitol Lake (Formerly Hotel RL).
“Every day, I hear from business owners who are struggling to find employees. We are holding the Workforce Summit to help employers understand the current state of the workforce issue from a big picture perspective; then we’ll provide them with tools to reinvigorate their workforce development tactics. In addition, we’ll have a resource fair at the event to highlight community resources and organizations that support workforce efforts,” said David Schaffert, Thurston Chamber President/CEO.
During this month’s luncheon and presentation, attendees will hear from Cheryl Fambles, CEO of Pacific Mountain Workforce Development Council will share data of the “Workforce Cliff” and will facilitate a panel discussion.
Part of the panel discussion will include innovative workforce programs and tools so employers can successfully hire and retain talent.
