Talent Committee

We’re a committee of dedicated industry professionals committed to talent attraction and development. While we come to the table holding a variety of positions, we all have the backing of our companies to engage. We meet 10 times per year, with three meetings featuring an industry best practice and opened to the FaB membership. We also will engage key academic, outreach and workforce development partners at several of our meetings.

We’re the force behind FaB’s Career Videos and commercial aired on Wisconsin Foodie, FaB’s Farm–Factory–Fork High School Career Exploration,  and new food manufacturing technical school programs.

 

OUR INVITATION TO SERVE

We invite FaB member food and beverage companies to have representation on our committee. If you or your company are interested, see below to determine if your interests align with our body of work. To explore participating on tFaB, please contact Shelley Jurewicz, executive director of FaB Wisconsin.

 

Why a focus on talent? 

To learn why, watch our FaB Video presented at our 2016 February CEO Briefing, "The State of Industry Talent.” 

tFaB’s role is to ensure the industry has a pipeline of talent. Meaning, that we have the talent to fill the growing number of positions and careers opportunities for your businesses and across the industry.

What we’ve learned to date is that the public is generally unaware of the lifelong career opportunities the food and beverage industry has to offer and the broad spectrum of opportunities. Talent can choose from, move about, and advance between, farm, factory and fork. We offer careers to feed and quench the world, better.

tFaB’s work is focused on establishing and marketing industry career opportunities for development, advancement and attraction; while sharing best practices.
