In a tight labor market, predicted to only get tighter with a shrinking and aging workforce, employers must utilize multiple strategies to hire and retain a skilled workforce that keeps them competitive.
In this session, PA CareerLink® Business Services and Lancaster County Workforce Development Board will showcase available no-cost services and funding opportunities and explain why you are missing out if you’re not using all the tools in your toolbox.

2. Job Matching assistance. Small HR (or no HR) office? Let us screen resumes and refer candidates to you from the PA CareerLink® database.
