It is time for our third annual State of the Workforce Survey and MOmentum Luncheon scheduled for Feb. 15, 2017 at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Oasis Conference Center.
Joining us as keynote speaker for the event will be Dr. John Jungmann who will share his viewpoints and ideas on "Developing the workforce of tomorrow today." This will be an interactive and engaging presentation involving students who will represent school districts in the Ozark Region. We will get to hear first hand from an innovative educator as well as the emerging workforce on their views of the world, of work, and employer expectations.
Several initiatives have been introduced since we released our first survey in 2014 including the Industry Roundtable Discussions, customized training programs such as our Multi-Trade Pre-Apprenticeship, the Build My Future Construction Career Day, opening of our new job center in North Springfield, the JET (Jobs, Education and Training) incumbent worker training fund, and Ozarks' Promise, an initiative funded by the Department of Labor to develop more healthcare professionals in the industry.
We rely on you as our business partner to help us shape our future workforce, so please plan to attend the luncheon and complete the survey at www.WDB2017.com before Jan. 9, 2017. For registration to the luncheon, please visit www.springfieldmo.gov/MOmentum.
