Plugging the Brain Drain: Strategies to Manage Your Skilled Labor Force

Whether it is a mechanic, an engineer, or an artist, access to a skilled workforce is an essential component to most businesses. Yet the most common way to recruit skilled labor, directly from the source, is wrought with problems. Formal trade schools, if they even exist, have trouble keeping up with the demand. Competitors sometimes snatch up the best candidates before they even graduate. Even if you can find qualified candidates you are still taking a chance by hiring an unknown person and entrusting them with a critical element of your business. This month’s seminar focuses on two novel solutions to this problem: Growing your own skilled workforce from internal candidates, and 2) Avoiding the problem altogether by hiring third party contractors. Join Labor Group Attorneys Benjamin Ford and Tawny Alvarez as they discuss legal strategies to help businesses manage their skilled labor workforce. Complimentary light breakfast will be provided for seminar attendees.
