The Colorado Mountain College School of Business has put out an invitation to business owners and nonprofit leaders and managers located in the college’s 12,000-square-mile district and service area to complete an online survey.
The results will be used by CMC to build partnerships and provide data for two, upcoming labor market summits. The hope is that this will also eventually leverage student internship possibilities.
Data from the completed surveys will help build CMC/business partnerships and focus on business needs. According to the CMC School of Business, the survey could eventually lead to internship possibilities for CMC students to work with local companies, organizations, and small businesses, creating learning opportunities by applying what students are studying to work-based environments.
The CMC School of Business Needs Survey is available at coloradomtn.edu/labormarket It should take less than 10 minutes to complete and provides businesses a forum to express what is working and what is not regarding employees, training and creating mutually beneficial business and higher education relationships.
CMC plans to use data drawn from the surveys as the focal point for two events this fall. The first State of the Labor Market 2022 Summit at the CMC School of Business will take place at Morgridge Commons in Glenwood Springs on Nov. 7. This will be followed by a second summit at the CMC Leadville campus on Nov. 9.
Both events will run from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. each day, and the business community is welcomed and encouraged to attend. To register for the free November summits, visit coloradomtn.edu/labormarket.
“The purpose of The State of the Labor Market 2022 Summit in Glenwood Springs and Leadville,” said Dr. Norma Guzman Duran, Dean of the CMC School of Business, “is to engage with employers in our mountain communities to develop meaningful partnerships centered on honest feedback and reciprocal support to advance economic mobility.”
