Your employees are your most valuable asset. That is why hiring the right employee is vitally important to building a thriving business. Providing workforce development resources is just one of the many initiatives the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce offers in support of the many challenges today's businesses face.

Have you heard of the 200x2020 initiative? This is a partnership initiative that began almost five years ago between the Granite United Way, Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, Belknap EDC, the Huot Technical Center, Lakes Region Community College, Meredith Career Partnerships Program, NHWorks, and many school-to-work coordinators and guidance counselors from our local schools. The collaboration strives to provide local students access to vocational, technical and occupational experiences, to engage our local employers and to identify and support our region's long-term workforce development needs.

Did you know there is a local searchable database with over 90 internships and job shadows offered by local Lakes Region businesses? This online database tool is available at www.LakesRegionInterships.com and was created by the 200x2020 collaborative initiative. That's right, over 90 internships available in a variety of industries to open teach young people about the career opportunities available here in our communities.

How do you find the right employees? The Chamber can provide the tools to attract qualified candidates. The Lakes Region JOB FAIR will be held Wednesday, April 8 from noon to 4 p.m. at The Margate Resort.
