It’s likely the most valuable day you’ll invest in workforce development all year – so register now for this fall’s fifth annual WIN in Workforce Summit.
Three professional tracks will guide the day, which will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Oct. 26 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center.
“We talk about talent development, talent attraction, and then we take the issues of the day and talk about best practices,” said Denise Guzzetta, vice president of talent and workforce development for the Sioux Falls Development Foundation.
“And it’s just amazing. This year, the content is going to be fantastic, and we’re also going to have a lot of different companies sharing their journeys and how they have evolved their programs so they can continue to build on their growth. We see that in our business community. We’ve been very successful regardless of the environment.”
Retired NFL running back Justin Forsett will be the keynote speaker. Forsett, founder and CEO of personal care company Hustle Clean and a co-host on LeBron James’ Uninterrupted podcast, will kick off the event with a message on transforming your career path.
“He went on ‘Shark Tank,’ he pitched an idea, and now his product is sold throughout Walmart and Target, so just a great inspirational message from someone who started homeless, had an opportunity to focus on a talent — sports — and took that talent and realized he wanted to make a career change and did that successfully,” Guzzetta said.
Examples of topics include workforce reimagined, collegiate engagement made easy, how to attract and maintain a diverse workforce, reinvention and culture.
The Sioux Falls Development Foundation is an approved recertification provider from the Society for Human Resource Management.
“Human resource professionals who attend WIN in Workforce will earn nine professional development credits, which is wonderful, and the networking benefit is huge,” Guzzetta said. “WIN is just a great place to engage and really grow. Workforce is something we’re tackling on a national and global level, so coming together to talk strategies and things you can implement right away is really powerful.”
