Workforce Trends and Human Resource Professional Panel

Speaking Locally

with Teresa Friel, Michelle Griffith, Aryn Schlichting and Jessica Valand

8:30 – 10 a.m., April 11, 2018

Colorado Mountain College | Edwards Campus

The Vail Valley offers a unique mixture of small town life, rural character, mountain living and big city amenities that create a “just right” quality of life balance that even Goldilocks would appreciate. But our story is no fairy tale. Our communities hold real opportunity for hard-working entrepreneurs, business owners and employees determined to live out the lives of their dreams in the mountains of Colorado.
Join us for a panel discussion with local human resource professionals, business owners and representatives from governmental organizations as they share trends and offer viewpoints regarding employee attraction, retention and benefits, using the Vail Valley Partnership annual workforce study as a guide.
