In its fourth year, our workforce initiative, Arvada Works, continues to focus on helping our members find, develop and retain the top local talent by leveraging and improving area partnerships. Many local businesses and community partners have joined Arvada Works to contribute to conversations that are crucial to identifying the challenges, gaps, and opportunities associated with a workforce readiness paradigm shift for youth and adults.
Through extending lessons learned from innovations in supply chain management, this is a call for employers to play an expanded leadership role as “end-customers” of education and workforce partnerships. The Arvada Works talent pipeline program is modeled off a national program from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation that has successfully launched in over 50 communities across the country and the Arvada Chamber of Commerce is lucky enough to be one of the selected sites to continue this incredible demand-driven work.
The Arvada Chamber of Commerce is proud to introduce 2021 toolkits for each of its seven priority areas. These toolkits will detail the specific challenges for our business community, critical supporting data, resources, and the Chamber’s action plan to help our members thrive.
The 2021 Workforce Toolkit serves as a guide for our work on the Arvada Works initiative, which is focused on helping our members find, develop and retain the top local talent across industries.
