Cultivating Dreams. Enhancing Lives.

INVEST FOR IMPACT TO IGNITE YOUR WORKFORCE

 

Today’s workforce has dramatically changed, leaving employers to rapidly adjust to “creative” processes for attracting the right people to their business. In order to compete, businesses must consider innovative programs that help them construct a talent pipeline of high-quality employees. The Canton Chamber and the Local Impact Alliance have teamed up to launch FUTURE FIT. This cutting-edge program prepares students (grades 10-12) to enter the workforce by directly connecting them to employers.

 

4 STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL ENGAGEMENT

 

  1. Consult with Future Fit Director to determine your workforce challenges and expectations.
  2. Work with Future Fit Director to design a realworld experience that provides student exposure to your operations.
  3. Interview Future Fit Scholars to determine best fit for your business.
  4. Train, develop and manage your Future Fit Scholar and provide a meaningful opportunity to fill your talent needs. Work to maximize the opportunity for them to become a full-time employee.
