Talent Talks: Connecting Talent & Businesses Virtually
This month’s edition officially kicks off a new style of sharing more personalized perspectives for leaders within our community. Starting with Mark Cotter, Director of Public Works Administration for the City of Sioux Falls, and then Michelle Klobassa, Senior Architect for TSP, Inc., to Alex Deeter, a recent graduate of Southeast Tech and a newly hired civil technician for DGR Engineering, we dive deeper into how their interests have contributed to many community projects, such as the restoration of The State Theater on Phillips Avenue.
We are also introducing new ways for us to support your employment efforts. Over the last few weeks, the talent engagement processes for businesses has shifted from in-person to virtual meetings via webinars and other technology tools. In the process, our businesses and our educational institutions have efficiently demonstrated the ability to adapt, to be nimble and to be continually supportive of our community.
In doing so, the Sioux Falls Development Foundation has also pivoted to enhance its talent programming initiatives to solidify the connectivity between talent and employers, to employ technology to engage our future workforce, and to continually share the most current and relevant best practices for workforce with all of our community partners.
