CARBON CHAMBER ANNUAL GOLF OUTING FLASHBACK 2013
Doing Business in Carbon County
After years of off-shoring their operations, more and more companies are now “re-shoring” their operations back to the United States from other countries. However the companies are finding that the skilled workers they need to fill many of these positions are no longer here. They have gone on to be re-trained for other jobs, or have actually retired.
Now the problem is there are not enough skilled workers to fill available positions. These skills include carpentry, HVAC, mechanics, electrical and welding among others. The problem exists not just in Carbon County but across the state and country.
In order to help our businesses, CCEDC is forming a Manufacturer’s Advisory Council in Carbon County.
The mission of the Manufacturer’s Advisory Council is not just to emphasize the importance of manufacturing, but will also focus on the following strategies:
- Act as a conduit for manufacturers to access Carbon County resources
- Provide informational peer-to-peer networking and discussion events featuring issues that affect manufacturers
- Serve as a platform for voicing interests and concerns of manufacturers with legislators
- Enhance the perception of manufacturing to the public and schools
CCEDC also facilitates the Business and Education Partnership. The Partnership works with businesses and schools to coordinate what skills students need when they graduate and either go on to college or go into the workforce. The Partnership also awards scholarships to high school seniors pursing a business career. Scholarship money is raised through the group’s annual 5K Earth Day Hippie Run/Walk held every spring.
If your business is looking for ways to grow, contact our office today and join us either as a member of the Manufacturer’s Advisory Council or the Business and Education Partnership. Be sure to ask us about our business counseling services and low interest loans too. We are here to help you!
