Ask any employer what their top struggles are, and you’ll likely receive the same answer, “finding good help”. Employers are struggling to find employees who are a good fit for their company. Unemployment rates are extremely low, which makes the hiring process more competitive. Western Pennsylvania has dozens of higher education and training options, which are trying to maintain or increase enrollment. Workforce development is one of the biggest issues currently facing our region. As the Moraine State Park Regatta Leadership Board plans the 2019 Regatta, we recognize that in order to provide an impactful community event of this scale, that we need to recognize the needs of the region. We are looking forward to bringing workplaces and educational institutions together to educate the community about opportunities for workforce development right here in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
