WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT: BEST PRACTICES IN PARTNERSHIPS* Webinar
Preparing today’s workforce for in-demand jobs is a key component in the fight to rebuild Pennsylvania’s economy. Strong partnerships between industry and organizations focused on workforce development are essential if the workplace needs of employers and employees are to be effectively met.
This program will address common challenges and pitfalls associated with building and maintaining strong partnerships in the world of workforce development while laying out a step-by-step blueprint through which the successful development of multi-organization partnerships can be achieved. This approach, which is based on best practices utilized by successful Pennsylvania economic development organizations, will include the use of case studies as well as discussion of several key elements ranging from the identification of partners to relationship building and definition of roles to strategic planning and, of course, information sharing and communication. In line with the motto of our presenters, practitioners must plan, implement, fine tune and then repeat in order to consistently meet the needs of our community’s workforces.
Professionals who will benefit from this session include, but are not limited to, economic development professionals, individuals whose responsibilities include any aspect of workforce development such as consensus-building, educational or industry partnerships, relationship management, etc. Also benefiting are those interested in gaining a stronger understanding of best practices in this area of subject matter or simply finding new value for clients.
This session is recognized by PEDA, the Pennsylvania Economic Development Institute and by the EDP certification program of the Northeastern Economic Developers Association (NEDA).
