BIA Focus on Public Policy Series:
“We're Here, We're Ready: How veterans, disabled adults, immigrants, and seniors can maximize your company's workforce.”
October 31, 2017, 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM
Grappone Conference Center, Concord
With unemployment rates at historic lows throughout the state, many New Hampshire employers are struggling to find the workers that they need. Traditional avenues for generating employee interest - such as job fairs and newspaper ads - may not be producing the necessary results; however, there are populations with significant amounts of untapped potential and talent in the state that are often overlooked. These include veterans, disabled adults, immigrants, and seniors.
Please join us for BIA Focus on Public Policy Series, presented by Lincoln Financial Group. A panel of experts will discuss the benefits of diversifying your workforce and thinking outside of the box regarding hiring practices. This will be followed by a Q&A session. Panelists include Todd Fahey, State Director, AARP; Tika Acharya, Executive Director, Bhutanese Community of NH; Peter Burdett, Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army for New Hampshire; and Lisa Hinson-Hatz, Vocational Rehabilitation State Director. Tina Sharby, Chief Human Resources Officer, Easter Seals will moderate the discussion.
There is no cost to attend the luncheon forum for BIA, BIA Capitol Connect, and partner organization’s members, but seating is limited and reservations are required. For more information, please contact Lora McMahon at 603-224-5388 x101.
