Written by Executive Director on . Posted in Business News, South Queens Chamber News

Attention Business Owners and Managers

Many businesses in the area are finding it challenging to hire staff to meet the needs of the business. If this is an issue your business is experiencing. you are invited to attend a meeting:

Thursday April 21, 2016
10:00am
Town Hall Art and Cultural Centre, Liverpool, NS.

At this meeting we are going to explore various ideas around how better to look for staff in our community. Discussion will include:

Is there a demographic we are missing? if so how do we reach them?

What is the best way local employers can connect with potential employees, since activities like job fairs are not well attended?

Is there an interest in having someone from the START program come and speak to us about funding available for training?

The aim is to look for innovative solutions and get ’the ball rolling’.

Please RSVP to Joanne Veinotte at: Joanne@whitepoint.com by Monday April 18 or call 902 354 2711 ext. 366
