Hiring Trends in the Capital District

Join us on May 11th - Hiring Trends in the Capital District
Current Trends, Workforce Readiness, and Diversity in Hiring

Last month we learned about Challenges on the Road to Economic Recovery from our dynamic and informative Executive Panel.  This month’s breakfast seminar will take that topic one step further and will examine Hiring Trends specifically within the Capital District. You will have the opportunity to hear from a great panel of speakers with insight into current hiring trends, workforce readiness and diversity in hiring.

Please join us to learn about how to update your recruitment strategies, bring the best talent to your organization, and manage the employee life cycle in a changing economy.  CRHRA is pleased to welcome our three panelists: Miriam Dushane, Branch Manager of Linium Staffing, Shelley Florence, Vice President for Associate Relations at Price Chopper Supermarkets, and Natalie L. Williams, Employment, Training, and One Stop Director at the Washington County EOC. The panel will be moderated by Traci Koppenhafer, a Black Belt in Benefit Operations at General Electric and who also sits on CRHRA’s Diversity Committee.
