The CKWorks: Attract, Engage, Retain series is led by the Chatham-Kent Workforce Planning Board and the Municipality of Chatham-Kent’s Community Attraction and Promotion team in response to feedback from local stakeholders and employers.

“Through our annual Employer One survey, we have heard loud and clear that employers feel their biggest challenges are attracting and retaining employees in their organizations. Attending this series will give employers a great opportunity to add more tools into their tool kits. This might not be the solve-all for every employer, but every tool helps to move them closer to the end goal of supporting and solidifying their workforce!” said Kristy Jacobs, Project Manager of the Chatham-Kent Workforce Planning Board.

The Chatham-Kent to the Power of Young People – CKy (aged 15-39) initiative gained feedback from local young people and employers who both use web and social media as a key method of sharing and accessing information on opportunities. More information on the feedback gained through CKy and the Action Plan are available at

“The Community Attraction and Promotion team works to market Chatham-Kent to new residents and visitors, and helps to welcome them when they arrive. We highlight the various opportunities to get involved in Chatham-Kent, and to support employers in retaining new employees by getting them connected. We’re excited to bring this series forward to help employers build partnerships that can assist in their own talent attraction efforts” says Audrey Ansell, Manager, Community Attraction and Promotion.
