FaB CEO Briefing: Recruiting & Retaining Wisconsin’s Industry Talent
Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM CST
Category: FaB Events

 

Turn out on March 25 for FaB's invite-only CEO Luncheon Briefing, the first of 2020. In addition to featuring Secretary Melissa “Missy” Hughes, CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. (WEDC), we’ll share the results of our current Talent Survey. If attracting and retaining talent is a top priority for your food or beverage business, attend for a look inside how our companies, and Wisconsin, are responding to attract the best and brightest.

Hughes is the former Chief Mission Officer & General Counsel for Organic Valley. She recently shared at a WEDC Strategy Session that “We use the words 'workforce' and 'talent'. They're people. Our people.” Secretary Hughes will offer her insights on attracting talent to the food and beverage industry and to Wisconsin.

It was around this time last year that Governor Evers addressed a FaB CEO Briefing of 100 industry executives to share the news that WEDC had awarded FaB a $150,000 Grant for our Talent Outreach Plan, which included funding support for FaB to conduct a Talent Survey.

Our 2019/2020 FaB Talent Survey is also being funded by Living as a Leader, and is being promoted in partnership with Midwest Food Products Association and Wisconsin Cheesemakers Association. It is being conducted, and results will be presented, by MRA, The Management Resource Association on behalf of FaB Wisconsin.
