About Event


Winning Talent Together: Apprentices – A Talent Pipeline Game Changer

Join HR practitioners as they discuss how we need to do more than acquire new talent in Pittsburgh, we need to create it. And when we are intentional, and create that talent from underrepresented, undeserved, displaced, veteran, and incumbent workers, we can grow the pool of a talent in a way that really moves the bar. 

This panel will discuss the existing apprenticable positions and their need to be created, examining non-traditional pathways and modern apprenticeships to reframe workforce development.
Join us to discuss how apprenticeships and partnerships can impact the future of work and hiring for our region. 

Panel Discussion/Questions: 
- How can apprenticeships provide a useful contribution?
- What are the goals of existing apprenticeship programs? 
- What partnerships are key to the success of apprenticeship programs? 
- Should employers receive financial incentives as part of apprenticeships? 
- How to attract potential apprentices?
