Summit highlights workforce related issues within region

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

MGEA includes Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Houston, Jones, Monroe, Peach, Pulaski, Putnam, Twiggs and Wilkinson counties. The initiative provides benefits to the region with location, low cost of doing business, an abundant labor supply, training programs and proximity to the port of Savannah and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

“This is a do-not-miss forum for community leaders, chamber representatives, industry representatives, plant managers, HR professionals, local government officials, employers, educators, nonprofits and workforce board members. It’s for anybody who offers benefits for employees. They need to find out issues going on in the workforce; they need a seat at the table,” Bragg said. “We’re excited [MGEA] is coming to Milledgeville. It goes to show the engagement level in our businesses and in our community is rising; that’s always a good sign.”
