Chamber, B-T Workforce Discuss Workforce
The Chamber had a meeting at Broome –Tioga Workforce to discuss ways to increase the level of skills and certificates that our current workforce is able to obtain. A common problem that has been identified by many of our Chamber members and businesses in the Southern Tier is that they are having a hard time hiring new employees because they do not have the skills or the knowledge to fit the hiring criteria. This creates a barrier to hiring a massive amount of people that could be part of their workforce. In the coming months, the Chamber will be working with the Broome – Tioga Workforce, and other community stakeholders, to help update the skill levels of our workforce and make them much more hirable.
