About this event

Employers are facing a workforce gap based on the age demographic of our labor pool. They need to find ways to retain and leverage their current workforce while maintaining quality and meeting production demands. This workshop will bring together regional industry, education, and resource agencies to learn from businesses currently using integrated automation.

Focus of the workshop:

  • The challenge of meeting demand with your existing workforce
  • The importance of a workforce retention strategy
  • Technology can enhance existing workforce skills, opening the door to increased production and earning potential through skill upgrade.
  • Technology accessibility for small to mid-size businesses (you don’t have to be big to integrate automation technology)
  • Regional education is building a local talent pipeline through partnerships with industry (regional high school and college programs)
  • Live demonstrations by vendors

Sponsored by Northwest Intermountain Manufacturers Assoc. (NIMA), Clearwater Economic Development Assoc. (CEDA), and USDA-Rural Development
