In a society facing complex business, political, scientific, technological, and environmental challenges, the skills of our workforce are crucial to our region's and our state's competitiveness. Our emerging workforce must get the education and training to prepare them to compete in today's workplace and prepare for the future. This issue is front and center with communities all across Georgia and the entire country. Economic Development professionals tell us that a community's "workforce readiness" has become one of the top considerations for companies looking to relocate or expand their business.
To assist the business community with their hiring and training, we invite you to save the date for our
2019 Workforce Summit
which will be held on
Thursday, August 29th.
This event will provide dynamic speakers from various professional backgrounds who will present information and resources for businesses of all sizes.
Workforce Development and Readiness is an ongoing and evolving process. Come and see how other companies and organizations are tackling these issues and learn about resources that are available locally that could benefit your business or organization.
I would also like to invite you to join us for
Good Morning Macon on July 30th
as we hear from Gary Black, Georgia Agriculture Commissioner.
In closing, I ask you to participate in a survey from
the Office of Governor Brian P. Kemp to help small businesses in Georgia continue to succeed. The survey is part of Kemp's Georgians First Commission. The Commission was created by Gov. Kemp to make Georgia the best state in the nation for small business. The Greater Macon Chamber supports goals of the Georgians First Commission to be the top state for business. Thank you for your support to keep best practices evolving. Please complete the survey
