Join Northwest Wisconsin Workforce Investment Board as it hosts the 11th annual business conference on May 8-9 at the Flat Creek Inn in Hayward, Wis.
This year’s conference, Reeling in Business, provides opportunities to network with regional stakeholders and business owners and learn about developments in regional, state and national initiatives and legislation, including an update on the Affordable Care Act.
The registration fee to attend both the pre-conference and conference is only $65.
The two-day event kicks off with an optional preconference on customer service to highlight how to give customers an exceptional experience at your business, and help you and your staff become the best you can be in all customer interactions. Drew Nussbaum, regional tourism specialist from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism delivers the presentation as part of the department’s customer service initiative.
Melanie Holmes, vice president at ManpowerGroup, delivers the keynote address on the Teachable Fit. Businesses face the ongoing challenge of finding the right people with the right skills at the right time – those who can improve performance, strengthen competitive advantage and drive sustainable growth. According to ManpowerGroup’s annual Talent Shortage Survey, it consistently reveals a substantial percentage of U.S. employers are struggling to fill mission-critical positions, despite continued high unemployment. This presentation will focus on forces of change that are transforming the world of work, examine the factors causing the talent shortage and then identify one specialized solution for winning today’s race for talent.
The interactive conference features the exchange of innovative ideas and practices and the sharing of the latest strategies in the use of workforce information and training. Other conference workshops include Telecommunication, Working with Different Generations, Labor and Employment Law Updates, Northwest Wisconsin Labor Market Information, and more.
A reception is held Wednesday evening to give attendees plenty of networking opportunities. To register for Reeling in Business, please visit http://tinyurl.com/2013BusinessConference or contact Melissa Burris at 715-682-9141, ext. 122 or email@example.com.
