Building PTBO: Future Workforce Event
December 6, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Peterborough & the Kawarthas Economic Development (PKED) and the Kawartha Manufacturers’ Association (KMA) are inviting you to meet with the University of Waterloo, Ontario Tech University, Trent University and Fleming College to learn more about the internship, co-op and experiential learning programs available at their educational institutions.
PKED and KMA have both heard from a number of local businesses that there is an increasing need for new hires in the fields of engineering and nursing. This event will serve to connect local businesses with these universities, to strengthen those relationships and close the identified gaps.
Representatives from businesses in the region will have the opportunity to listen to a diverse range of post-secondary schools explain the advantages of recruiting students, new grads and alumni through co-ops and internships. This will not only help develop a strong and talented workforce, but your business may be entitled to tax credits related to hiring as well.
Sign up to learn how to take advantage of this great opportunity to recruit talent from well-respected educational institutions from across Southern Ontario.
