September 12 Presentations and Networking Event Attracts over 80 participants


Over 80 participants from all  Industry Partnerships (SEI, ITAG, Health Care Connect and the Manufacturing Alliance), attended  richly informative presentations on techniques to attract and retain your best talent.

After the presentations, participants enjoyed networking, food and beverages. Participants were actively sharing best practices, common issues, and business connections.

The following experts provided excellent and useful information on ways to attract and retain your best talent:

May 9 at La Cabra Brewing: Spring Partnership Meeting & Networking Event


The Manufacturing Alliance of Chester & Delaware Counties – Spring Partnership Meeting & Networking Event on May 9 at La Cabra Brewing

We had a very successful Spring Partnership meeting, which included a presentation by Sassan Hejazi (Director, Technology Solutions) from Kreischer Miller. Sassan provided a summary of the Kreischer Miller Manufacturing Survey which contained valuable information for manufacturers located all across our Region. This is the 4th year that Kreischer Miller has done the survey;  they have developed some good trend information that was discussed at the presentation that is specific to only our region. The Networking event featured latin-inspired gastropub appetizers and craft beers brewed on site.

Please help us to grow the Alliance by coming to the next event in September, and  inviting a fellow manufacturer to attend!

Service providers are welcome, however, we respectfully ask that you invite a manufacturer to register and attend the event with you.

From AON: How To Respond To Rising Global Medical Costs


 

Aon’s 2018 Global Medical Trend Rates survey reveals that the cost of health care is rising faster than inflation. In 2017, the global average increase in medical costs was 8.2 percent, against a worldwide inflation rate of 2.8 percent.

To keep workforces happy, healthy and productive, companies should accelerate their efforts in helping employees understand risk factors and begin taking steps to improve their health.
