Given the importance of maximizing all viable channels for finding good workers, the 2nd Annual Manufacturers Only Workforce Summit will feature an exploration of the “alternate workforce.” This population includes workers who are developmentally disabled, ex-offenders who have completed workforce training and displaced workers.
Michael Kijak, Director of Operational Excellence & Legrand Way with Legrand North and Central America, will be on hand to talk about the success Legrand has experienced with programs like these. “Our company doesn’t just see this as a way to support disadvantaged communities,” he said. “It certainly is that, but it’s a lot more. The workers we’ve hired through alternative channels like these have become an integral part of Legrand’s success.”
The Manufacturers Only Workforce Summit is exclusively for founders, presidents, and/or CEOs of manufacturing companies in Connecticut, along with their senior HR executives. Attendance is by invitation only, and you can request a registration code by emailing Beth Devine at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (860) 432-9977.
Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. Because this event is exclusively for manufacturing executives, it will not be possible to accommodate walk-ins.
The full agenda, along with panelists and keynote speakers, will be announced shortly. For more information please check out the Workforce Summit 2020 page here on our website.
