Workforce & Talent Summit: Part of the Six Pillar Conference Series
The Vermont Workforce & Talent Summit is the inaugural event in the Vermont Chamber’s Six Pillar Conference Series focused on promoting the long-term economic health of our state and providing opportunity for Vermonters. This event will provide tools to support talent recruitment and retention strategies which are essential to business growth and require partnerships between employers, educators, training providers, and government. The people, skills and training that power the economy today and the challenge of ensuring a new workforce generation will be at the heart of this event.
Partners for this event include the Vermont State Workforce Development Board, the Vermont Department of Labor, Advance Vermont, the Vermont Futures Project, and SHRM.
