About the Connecting Workforce Resources Spring Tour
The Connecting Workforce Resources Spring Tour is jointly organized and led by the Sector Partnerships Initiative (SPI) and ApprenticeshipNH. The tour is a statewide series of programs that focus on matching employers in the core industries of construction, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing and technology with resources to help them grow, attract and retain talent.
“The previous four events of the Connecting Workforce Resources Spring Tour were very well received and provided local businesses with information about the workforce resources available to them,” said Phil Przybyszewski, workforce solutions project director for the Sector Partnerships Initiative. “The June 5 event will provide valuable information that companies may be otherwise unaware of. Just as with the events in Manchester, Keene, Berlin and Laconia, we are excited to help companies move forward with their workforce goals.”
The event follows a speed networking format and features overviews of the following programs:
- New Hampshire Sector Partnerships Initiative
- Office of Workforce Opportunity
- Great Bay Community College Business and Training Center
- New Hampshire Employment Security
Each of these organizations will present a five-minute overview of their organization. Following the high-level presentations, attendees will be able to go more in-depth by selecting the three workforce organizations best suited to their company’s needs. They will then participate in 20-minute meetings with representatives from those programs and organizations.
“With New Hampshire’s tight workforce, employers are finding it difficult to identify and attract talent with the skills necessary to fill vacant positions,” said Anne Banks, workforce development administrator for the Community College System of New Hampshire and ApprenticeshipNH. “It is our hope to be able to educate and assist companies in finding and crafting the workforce they need by using sustainable methods and resources.”
