On March 8, 2016, Danko Arlington was excited to take part in a special Baltimore Development Corporation seminar held at the Baltimore Hilton entitled, “Workforce of the Future: Resources to find talented & motivated employees”
The program featured presentations from Bill Cole, President & CEO, Baltimore Development Corporation (BDC), Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Michael Galiazzo, Regional Manufacturing Institute, Secretary Kelly Schulz, Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, and Mary Sloat, Assistant Director, Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED).
The event consisted of speakers and panelists to discuss strategies to develop, recruit, and retain employees. In addition, attendees learned how an industrial employer can connect to the training pipeline in Baltimore. The City has outstanding resources to local business!
Danko Arlington’s interest in STEM, local schools, and working with local and city organizations such as MOED were shared as long term solutions for future skilled workers. No doubt, a shortage of talent is one of the greatest concerns of today’s manufacturers.
