Employee recruitment and retention is always a challenge for employers. But the steady economic growth and record-low unemployment rates that the Louisville area has been experiencing can make it especially difficult.
On Friday, a diverse group of speakers from the Louisville region and beyond took the stage at the Muhammad Ali Center to comment on a variety of challenges facing our community, including racial and economic inequality, youth violence, and access to higher education. The event, Tomorrow's Talent, was the latest iteration of a yearly summit hosted by KentuckianaWorks, 55,000 Degrees, and Greater Louisville Inc.
WDRB: "One of the perks of a Louisville program is helping people land jobs before they even graduate. Representatives of Kentuckiana Builds say the organization is not just laying the foundation for jobs in construction -- it's building careers."
Excerpt from Roxanne Scott's article on WFPL.org:
"A local program that helps residents move from public assistance to employment is marking its 10th year. Guests gathered at the Hotel Louisville Friday for a luncheon to celebrate Power of Work."
