Skills Gap Solutions Discussed

forum bsd

Addressing the skills gap was the topic of a Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) event- the Chippewa Valley Skills Gap Solutions Forum which was held on Wednesday, December 17, at the Chippewa Valley Technical College in Chippewa Falls.

The event was organized with the shark tank concept- allowing skills gap service providers the opportunity to pitch their program and services to the attendees then receiving feedback from a panel of workforce specialist from Manpower. Chippewa Valley organizations and school district solution providers presented their ideas during the 2-hour Forum, and following the presentations select groups split up into small group workforce discussion sessions.  “The purpose of the event was to get solution providers together and made aware of available Chippewa Valley solutions- then to use each other as a resource or referrals,” stated Charlie Walker, President/CEO, CCEDC, “ small group discussions where set up for employers to get more detailed information from solution providers.” The manufacturing industry is a target for most of the solution providers, since it is one of the biggest industries that needs help with skills gap issues.

There were 50+ attendees at the Forum and many more others who came specifically for the workforce discussion groups. CCEDC also held their annual Holiday Open House and Networking Reception that evening - over 100 investors and economic development were on hand to share in holiday cheer.
