Taking Action to Attract and Retain Skilled Labour for South Okanagan

Jan 14

On behalf of the City of Penticton, please join us to set the action plan for finding and keeping the skilled labour needed to ensure business prosperity and growth from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM, on Thursday, January 14 in Meeting Room 6-7. Have your say on what we should be doing first.

Our consultant will present a proposed action plan to tackle the challenges and priorities identified by our employers and local stakeholders this past fall. At the meeting, we will prioritize our next steps. To help us make something happen quickly, we will identify who needs to be involved, what success will look like, and how we measure that success to know we are making progress.This project is nearing completion – and that means we move away from planning and get down to taking action – your input is essential to determining these future actions!

Looking forward to moving from data collection and analysis to planning and implementation! Please register here.
