  • Hiring the Next Generation

    June 11, 2019

    Finding, hiring, and retaining new talent is a challenge for all businesses, but can be especially difficult in manufacturing industries like printing.

In this session, Donna Painter an Assistant Professor at Millersville University, will share information about hiring challenges and strategies to positively change perceptions of our industry. This session will also identify multiple sources, within the education sector, that you can use to find the types new talent you need to sustain and grow your business.
