Workforce Success Webinar Series

Grow Detroit's Young Talent

Finding and retaining talent is the greatest challenge businesses are facing across the country. To support employers in our region, the Detroit Regional Chamber developed the Workforce Success Toolkit, and accompanying Workforce Success Webinar Series, to help employers navigate strategies to attract, develop, advance and retain current and future talent.

The Workforce Success Webinar Series will be led by Jon Kaplan, former chief learning officer at Discover Financial Services and national leader in employer-led upskilling and tuition assistance support. It will provide a deep dive into three of the most important topics in talent:

  • Education assistance programs
  • Internships and work-based learning
  • Creating a learning culture

For those interested in learning more about these programs, our Education and Talent Advisers are available to guide your leaders in implementing strategies that meet the needs of your business and industry.
