Greater Hamilton Chamber Helping to Solve the "Skills Gap" Problem

We continue to hear concerns from businesses related to the topic of finding and keeping qualified workers. One of the specific concerns is that the people applying for jobs don't have the skills necessary to perform the jobs that are available.
We are helping to deal with this problem with the creation of Skills Central.  Skills Central is a supportive workforce development initiative sponsored by the Greater Hamilton of Commerce and the Hamilton Community Foundation.
Skills Central services are offered to job-seekers in the Greater Hamilton area. Skills central is designed to help individuals get the job skills needed to build a successful future.  For more information, contact Joel Fink, Coordinator, at 513-863-0800 ext. 33.  If you are an employer, please complete this survey.
