Last Wednesday, CALMC hosted our membership meeting and Jobs Forum. With around 50 people in attendance, participants heard about initiatives in job retention and creation, in addition to programs designed to help workers who lose their jobs.
We’ve posted pictures on our Facebook page. Just search for CALMC and take a look.
Among the highlights of the program was a presentation about Ohio Means Jobs. If you haven’t looked at the site (ohiomeansjobs.com), it is a comprehensive site for job seekers and businesses trying to find employees. It is designed to help job seekers find jobs in Ohio. Businesses can view resumes of people interested in working in Ohio at no cost to them. Instead of paying Monster for resumes, Employers who do a free sign-up to the site can access resumes at no cost.
Another highlight was a keynote address by Dr. Gregg Gascon from the Ohio Education Association about what is coming in health care. Gregg covered a variety of topics related to the Affordable Health Care Act and how it will impact both employees and employers. He highlighted some of the advantages and disadvantages of the law, along with tips about how to anticipate the changes.
If you missed the Forum or want to learn more, we are planning to offer it again sometime next fall or winter. We also hope to offer forums at other locations within our service area.
Next week, we will give you some information about an upcoming webinar presented by CALMC and our sister organizations in the Ohio Labor-Management Cooperation Program.
