The unemployment rate is at an all-time low, which is great news for the economy. However, as the talent pool continues to shrink, finding and then keeping great talent has become a priority to employers, particularly in competitive markets.

“We have such a vibrant, collaborative, and growing local economy, but to remain competitive and fuel this growth we need to fine tune what we do as employers and a community to actually attract and then retain diverse, innovative talent,” said Katy Brooks, Bend Chamber CEO. “This is worth talking about. If we put our collaborative minds together, we can certainly determine what’s working and then build on it,” she added.

June’s What’s Brewing focuses on what employers are doing to change the way they hire and retain employees, and the audience helps weigh in on what keeps them at their jobs and in Central Oregon.


Doors open for networking at 5 p.m. | Forum starts at 5:30 p.m. | Registration includes a tasty beverage and appetizers!
Registration is $40 at the door.
