DWA Guest Blog: Bonnie Wrightman
Here at Durham Workforce Authority (DWA), we are constantly looking for ways to ensure the community is aware of the valuable resources we provide. As part of that process, we are working to develop a series of monthly blogs to help our stakeholders better understand the value the DWA provides in the community.
For the month of July, we are proud to publish a Guest Blog Post featuring: Bonnie Wrightman – Manager of Business Development, Clarington Board of Trade & Office of Business Development.
“Durham Region is fortunate to have an engaging, talented and interactive team at Durham Workforce Authority. The Clarington Board of Trade & Office of Economic Development feels the labour market information collected and presented by DWA, and various formats of data in terms reports made available by DWA, has great value to not only our organization but to our market: members of the Clarington business community.
We are privileged to have the opportunity to access and share relevant data helping to inform employers on labour market trends and labour force activity helping to bridge the gap between employer needs and labour force skill sets. As well, DWA has provided us with community occupation/wage data for employers looking for this information.
Job growth and job demand data have been very useful in helping identify growth trends and industry workforce needs. We also integrate labour force data in our business investment and community profile package – valuable information for any business looking to expand or locate to the Clarington community.”
