Workforce development is that thing happening in the background that a lot of people take for granted in their local community.
People are looking for jobs; and despite some of the narrative surrounding the Finger Lakes Economy – there are tons of them.
Finger Lakes Works focuses on connecting employers and prospective employees. One way they do that is by assisting to fill the educational or training gap, which might stand between a person living in a rural community in the Finger Lakes – and a quality, good paying job.
Karen Springmeier, Executive Director of Finger Lakes Works was in-studio this week for FingerLakes1.com’s Sunday Conversation.
She talked about the loss of Hillside in Seneca County; and discussed those efforts to enhance the workforce in the Finger Lakes.
