Sargento is on the front edge of how businesses will need to engage their high schools, colleges and universities, and community to attract the talent they need to sustain their growth and innovation.

"When Anne Troka shared with the FaB Talent Forum the work she is doing as Workforce Development Liaison for Sargento Foods, we knew it was a best practice that our companies should take note of and adapt for our own talent strategies," said Gina Balke, HR Generalist for Ocean Spray and Talent Forum co-chair.

Attendees met up for an insight-filled presentation and discussion about:

  • How business, education, and communities can partner to address workforce and economic needs both short, one to two years, and long term, five to ten years
  • Key conversations and collaborations around workforce development and economic development to make sure that education and communities know what business needs to attract and retain talent
  • Collaborative business commitment to drive needed economic development of community to attract and retain talent
  • Visibility of all the great assets here so students, alumni, Millennials, Gen Z, and veterans are linked directly to great jobs at Sargento and quality of life in our communities
  • Sargento's wide variety of new and evolving STEM Careers in R&D, IT, Engineering, Marketing, Maintenance, and Mechatronics that are attractive to people motivating them to stay here or move here

This members only Best Practice Session was designed for industry professionals and includes facilitated peer discussion. We encouraged attendance by food and beverage company leaders, human resources, and talent recruitment professionals who routinely deal with the attraction and retention of talent.
