If you’re an employer who is not only concerned about a skills gap, but also a growing number of retirements on the horizon, then this half-day Workforce Summit event is just what you need.
Attendees will learn about how ageing is impacting our region as a whole and various industry sectors. They’ll also feel more empowered to take action to mitigate the impacts of retirement on their own workforce through access to our online information hub and advice from best practice speakers.
Register today and hear what other employers your size are doing to reinvent their workplace retirement strategies.
Please Save the Date, and spread the news, about our upcoming event: Test Drive Day. An opportunity for high-school students to tour companies who employ skilled trades workers.

A reminder that on November 8th, we launched a private Facebook Group for Windsor-Essex Women in Skilled Trades. This group is designed to give Women in Windsor-Essex who are working in the trades, or looking to start a career in the trades, a supportive community. In the group, women and girls can ask questions, get advice, and chat with other women working in the skilled trades without any insecurity or judgement. Any females working in, or looking to start a career in, the skilled trades are welcome to join the conversation.
