In partnership with Patterson Law, the Chamber hosted “Recruitment and Retention – The Need for Innovation” in November. The event features a panel of senior human resource professionals from Royer Thompson, Grant Thornton and J.D. Irving. The event was very well attended, and evaluations were positive with all participants expressing interest in a follow up workshop to help define individual business “employee value proposition” statements as well as interest in improving employment contracts and in improving workplace culture. The partnership with Patterson was balanced and of mutual benefit.
