MERRIMACK VALLEY CHAMBER BUSINESS EXPO
Help us to help you! Take our brief survey.
Join us for a unique opportunity to learn more about transportation challenges in the upper Merrimack Valley that impact your company with an eye towards developing collaborative solutions! Recruitment and retention concerns are often exacerbated by mobility needs of employees. Many of you may share the same concerns with respect to employee commuting challenges – worksites oftentimes are not located within reasonable access to public transportation or public transportation days/hours of service may not meet the needs of your worksite. Many employees do not have access to or choose not to have personal transportation.
The Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce, Merrimack Valley Planning Commission, and the Merrimack Valley TMA invite you to share your perspective and points of view at the FREE Increasing Mobility & Access To Your Worksite breakfast forum. This free breakfast forum – which will be held in conjunction with the Merrimack Valley Chamber’s annual fall Business Expo is designed to provide an opportunity to learn from each other about the specific challenges you face in order to identify and develop opportunities for collaborative solutions. You will drive the discussion – A few things to consider:
- From what communities do you typically recruit employees?
- What are the transportation limitations that are contributing to recruitment, retention, and growing the workforce at your company?
- Are there ancillary barriers to transportation access for employees – language, cultural preference, financial constraints, internships?
- Have you implemented a transportation solution – was it successful?
We are looking to identify opportunities to work together to improve access to your worksite for employees! Come prepared to join the dialogue.
