CENTER FOR WORKFORCE SOLUTIONS: CONNECTING EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYEES, AND SOLVING MINNESOTA’S WORKFORCE SHORTAGE

We’re pleased to announce the launch of our new Center for Workforce Development. It is a first-of-its-kind Minnesota-business led initiative. The center provides an opportunity to share with the public and other audiences the value that the Minnesota Chamber offers to solving workforce challenges in our state. It strengthens our position as a leader on the economy and distinguishes us from other organizations focused on workforce. 

The center will be comprised of four existing programs:

INFLUENCER: Lara Hammel & Jeff Sommers

Ice cream is more than just a dessert. At Izzy’s, we get that. We take to heart that ice cream plays a lot of roles in your life, and it’s been right by you when you need it most. That’s why at Izzy’s, we don’t take making ice cream lightly. We come into our kitchen, throw on our aprons, and before the sun’s even up, we got to work on handcrafting some of the best darn ice cream you’d ever need.

Center for Workforce Solutions

Minnesota employers and employees face critical questions every day: How to make sure that workers possess the necessary tools for jobs of the future? How to match those skills and find enough workers to meet the needs of businesses who want to stay and grow in Minnesota? 

The Minnesota Chamber Foundation’s Center for Workforce Solutions is a first-of-its-kind in Minnesota business-led initiative. Through leadership, collaboration and key partnerships, it offers research and programs to confront the state’s worker shortage and helps the state’s economy change and grow.
