Giving Thanks to The Workers! [POSTPONED] Lunch & Learn Presentation: Finding, Developing, and Retaining Workers in NM

Luncheon POSTPONED – [NEW DATE will be 1st quarter of 2023]

Members and Friends,


That’s one week before Thanksgiving and a perfect day to discuss how we locate, develop, RESPECT and RETAIN the workers who make our operations a success.

Please join us as Janet Kerley shares the data and guides us in discussion on these important workforce issues.

Janet Kerley, SFCC presents the opportunities and overcoming the challenges of finding your next employees, developing their skills, and RETAINING them over the long term.

RSVP HERE for the November 17th Luncheon w/ Janet Kerley – Program Manager for EHS Training at Santa Fe Community College Department of Continuing Education and Contract Training.  She develops and provides site-specific health and safety training for private and public sector clients.  She manages SFCC’s EPA Job Training Grants which require training and job placement for graduates.

Boomers are retiring.  The GenXers are over 40.  Millennials are in mid-career. All employers are finding it difficult to find and hire Gen Z workers in New Mexico. The local labor force shortage is not a short-term issue.  Several factors (changes in immigration policy, COVID risks, childcare availability, wages) are causing fundamental changes in work preferences and career goals.  This presentation summarizes the recent research and polling results for finding, recruiting, and retaining Gen Z workers.

Ms. Kerley will also hold a Q&A and share her industry perspective on where YOU can look for your next great employee!
