At a time when unemployment nears a record low, how do companies fill vacancies critical to small business success? One way is to consider untapped sources of talent in communities. The U.S. Small Business Administration invites participants to learn from businesses who have found success by exploring new pools of talent in their communities. These innovative businesses now include employees with disabilities, formerly incarcerated individuals, and youth in foster care who are transitioning to independence. Meet the employers, hear from members of their teams, and connect with organizations who can link participants to eligible candidates to meet business needs.
