New regional labor assessment ‘critical’ for retaining and recruiting companies

The assessment will give an overview of the regional economy, labor supply, and competitive wage and benefit packages for in-demand positions, based on data collected from the Department of Labor, manufacturing councils and organizations, and companies.

“These are things that are critical to convincing companies to come here and for convincing companies that are here to stay here,” said Tom Kucharski, president and CEO of Invest Buffalo Niagara.
