LEWISTON — Labor force realities and how employers can respond will be the topic of discussion at the Central Maine Human Resources Association meeting Sept. 15.
Mary Lafontaine, manager of the Lewiston CareerCenter, will tackle the long-term issue of the labor shortage in Maine and practical steps employers can take in response.
This CMHRA monthly breakfast meeting is geared for human resource personnel and business owners but is open to all (as are all CMHRA meetings). The meeting will get underway at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 15, at the Ramada Inn in Lewiston.
The breakfast and meeting are free for CMHRA members. There is time to network before and after the program, which is designed to provide guidance and resources for anyone dealing with employee issues.
This interactive presentation will give business leaders and HR professionals the opportunity to learn new recruitment and training strategies and to share best practices with others. Participants will learn about the training programs, services, and funds available, through the CareerCenters and other community resources, that will help train new and incumbent workers.
Membership to CMHRA is open to all for-profit, non-profit, public and private organizations. Meetings are regularly attended by human resources managers, benefits administrators, health, wellness and safety managers, training and development professionals, supervisors, small business owners, and other individuals interested in human resource issues.
