Workforce Team On the Go

Regional Workforce Consultant Tiffany Chavers participated in the "Untapped Labor Markets" panel discussion in Eastlake, Ohio this week. The event was a collaborative effort between the Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce, the Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce and the Alliance for Working Together. Tiffany was able to share valuable veteran hiring resources and best practices with employers in the audience.
