Regional businesses use large think tank to come together and discuss common issues

BENTON, IL — Southern Illinois Works will hold a conference at the Benton Civic Center on Tuesday, September 24th from 7-11:30am to discuss extreme challenges regional businesses face in the recruitment and retaining of workers.

One of the event sponsors is Rend Lake College. Gabriele Farner, Dean of Applied Science & Advanced Technology at RLC, says the conference is essentially a big think tank of southern Illinois businesses.

Business leaders of both large and small companies as well as agency staff are encouraged to register.

Farner gives a breakdown of how the conference will play out during the day.

There is not a registration deadline, however Farner says registration is necessary to attend and the earlier you do so, the better. Details on where and how to register can be found via the link here: http://si.works/conference-registration-form/
