Gilmore Jasion Mahler Tackles Manufacturing Workforce Shortage at Upcoming Roundtable Events

Finding and keeping good people is one of the top challenges facing manufacturing businesses across the northwest Ohio region. An upcoming event series won’t solve the problem, but it does offer manufacturers a way to help keep their current workforce engaged and could also be a plus for their recruitment efforts.

“Your Not-So-Secret Weapon for Employee Engagement” is a panel discussion featuring a representative from Workforce and Community Services at Owens Community College and representatives from area manufacturers including Bollin Label Systems, Bolt Express and City Apparel. They’ll discuss this so-called “secret weapon” and how it is helping them stay more connected to their workers. A legal expert will also discuss the impact of Ohio’s new law to legalize medical marijuana, which goes into effect on September 8th.

The free roundtable events are Thursday, August 11 from 2-5 pm at The Pinnacle, 1772 Indian Wood Circle, Maumee and Wednesday, August 17 from 11:30 am-1 pm at Findlay Country Club, 1500 Country Club Drive in Findlay. Lunch is included at the Findlay event.
