One to illustrate how we work together and another on how we take action together





8:50 - 10:00 AM  
Meet Secretary Ray Allen of the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. With unemployment at historic lows (2.9%) and the tightening labor and talent pool, the Secretary shared his list of best practices for employers and took questions from the audience. The secretary's bottom-line message: "We're only as good as our interaction with you, our employers."
