Lansing Regional Chamber Job Board to Help Region’s Employers Connect with Job Seekers
The Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) has launched a new online job board that LRCC members can use to share their job openings with those seeking employment. The Member Job Board is located on the LRCC website under the Talent tab and can be accessed at https://members.lansingchamber.org/jobs.
“For years, our members have told us that the availability of talent is the number one concern they have in trying to grow their business,” said Steve Japinga, vice president public affairs, LRCC. “The Lansing Regional Chamber has developed several key initiatives around talent, including Leadership Lansing. The job board is the logical next step in helping our members attract and retain the best talent possible.”
The Member Job Board is also part of a regional strategy around talent attraction and retention. LRCC has joined with LEAP and 10 other regional partners to create the first State of the Lansing Region Benchmarking Report, which compares Lansing’s competitiveness to 11 peer regions around the country. One of the key findings in the report is the need for the region to increase growth in the labor force. The full State of the Lansing Region Benchmarking Report will be released on May 4.
“There is no question that our efforts to grow the labor force over the next decade will be key to our regional vitality,” said Japinga. “The Member Job Board will help our members and the region communicate that we have the jobs available in a diverse group of industries.”
Only LRCC members will be allowed to add jobs to the website. However, the landing page will be available to the public. Therefore, people outside the organization will also be aware of and be able to view open positions.
