Mesa wants to help businesses find and keep workers

As employers struggle to find — and keep — workers, Mesa is trying to help.

The city will launch a talent recruitment series with three webinars focused on free recruitment resources, employee retention, and changes and trends in the labor market. The webinars are offered to any employer across the Valley at no charge.

Mesa is also asking business within the city to complete an online survey. It asks things like what are your greatest workforce challenges, do you offer programs for interns or apprentices, and how many and what kind of positions do you expect to fill in the next three months.

Mesa’s economic development team will use the survey to better understand workforce demands and ways to provides services to employees.

The following information was provided by Mesa:
