Symposium to focus on workforce development

FORT COLLINS – BizWest Media LLC has joined forces with the Larimer County Workforce Center to present a daylong event delving into workforce issues in Northern Colorado.

The Larimer County Workforce Symposium will take place Tuesday, Sept. 30, at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center in Loveland, in conjunction with the Bixpo B2B Expo.

The Symposium will include keynote presentations, panel discussions and dozens of “BixTalks,” during which experts from business, nonprofits and consulting companies will describe their own best practices in workforce development.

“It is very exciting to deliver a redesigned Workforce Symposium in partnership with BizWest,” said Adam Crowe, business development manager of the Larimer County Workforce Center. “As the Northern Colorado economy grows employers need to shift how they manage their workforce. This event will provide practical ways for employers to find, retain, and train employees.”
Topics will include a presentation from the Colorado Demographers Office on the latest population and demographic data in Northern Colorado and the state overall, with predictions for what the workforce will look like in the coming decades. Additionally, attendees will hear about the latest Larimer County Employment Study from the city of Fort Collins.

Other content will focus on filling skills gaps, recruitment challenges, retention and readjustment, and leadership development.  

“We are thrilled to partner with the Larimer County Workforce Center to present an event of this magnitude,” said Christopher Wood, publisher of BizWest. “Workforce issues present one of the greatest challenges for any employer. Anyone from owners to human-resource directors to managers to prospective employees should attend this valuable program.”

Bixpo will include more than 100 booths, with BixTalks occurring among the exhibitors. For sponsorship or booth information contact Sandy Powell at 970-232-3144 or at
