    IEDA Webinar

    Welders, CNC Operators, Carpenters and other professions, trained at State expense, available for work.

    This webinar will feature Sherman Johnson, Indiana Department of Corrections, talking about a new state program that trains offenders as certified welders, CNC operators, commercial carpenters, logistics workers and workers with advanced manufacturing skills. These workers bring tax incentives for employers and are ready and eager to work upon release from incarceration. Johnson will share details of the program, address concerns that employers may have, and talk about early successes. This may be a good webinar to invite your board members, or local HR directors to sit in on.

    Schools and economic development are inextricably linked: workforce has become one of the most critical drivers in attracting new development to Indiana. At the same time, tax increment finance (TIF) is one of few tools economic developers have for creating the physical environment conducive for new development. The complex relationship between schools, TIF, and economic development is often misunderstood. This workshop presented by the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents, Umbaugh and the Indiana Economic Development Association will talk about the increasingly important role that schools play in economic development, will explain how TIF works within a community, and will highlight best practices where schools and economic developers have launched projects together using TIF to accomplish common school and economic development goals.

    As Indiana enjoys record low levels of unemployment, trained workers have become a scarce commodity. While there is no ‘hidden’ workforce, there are potential MVP employees on the sidelines because they haven’t completed high school, are a few hours shy of completing a college degree or certificate, or just haven’t been able to actualize their full potential because ‘life got in the way.’ Additionally, today’s students have limited awareness of how technology has changed many career fields limiting their insight for training needs and access to careers in great businesses across Indiana.

    Blair Milo, Secretary of Career Connections and Talent, has been searching out company best practices, State of Indiana programs, and financial resources that companies and communities can use to mobilize the sidelined and under-utilized workers. In this 90-minute, interactive workshop Secretary Milo discusses how to best utilize the newly established Office of Work-Based Learning and Apprenticeship and highlights statistics about Indiana’s underutilized workforce; connects attendees to practical, company best practices for any size business, as well as state and national resources that can provide financial assistance. These resources and best practices will help businesses attract, retain and develop talent serving Hoosier students, workers and businesses now and as industry evolves.

    Local economic developers will learn about tools they can share with local companies during BR&E visits, or, they should bring local company representatives to learn first-hand about these tools and resources.
