ChannelCon Panel to Focus on Building Your Workforce Through Talent Development

ChannelCon 2016 BannerCompTIA’s annual conference, ChannelCon, connects the industry’s leading solution providers, vendors, distributors and media. During this year’s event, one panel will address “Building Your Workforce Through Talent Development,” on Tuesday, August 2, at 1:45 – 2:45 pm.

Business success demands having the best people. There’s no one way to recruit the best people, and if companies want to compete, they need to expand their hiring strategies. You can develop your talent from the bottom level up through apprenticeships and internships. From engaging interns to “return” workers, hear how tech employers are developing their own talent pools.

Attendees at the session will learn how to work with local schools, government and other organizations to skill up their tech workforce, no matter how small or large a business they have. Plus they’ll hear about best practices for developing successful internship and apprenticeship programs.

Creating IT Futures’ CEO Charles Eaton will moderate this panel with speakers:
  • Rafael Alvarez, Founder & CEO, Gensys Works,
  • Chris Becker, Director of Human Resources and Recruiting, Atomic Data,
  • Paul Cronin, SVP, Atrion,
  • Ann Kisting, Executive Director, Chicagoland Chamber Foundation, and
  • Heather Terenzio, Co-founder, CEO and President, Techtonic.
Register for ChannelCon to attend the session.
