Organized by the Simsbury Chamber of Commerce, Robert Hensley & Associates was proud to host a group of young students from Masters School at their offices for the 2015 Job Shadow Day — a nationwide event aimed at helping students see how the skills they learn in school are put to use in the workplace.
“Businesses that participate in events like today’s benefit because they’re making a smart investment in their future – a future when there won’t be enough skilled, entry-level workers to replace retiring baby-boomers,” said Beth B. Buehlmann, Chamber executive director of the Center for Workforce Preparation. “Skilled, educated, and experienced young workers are becoming increasingly valuable.”
Job Shadow Day (nationwide) will place more than one million students at 100,000 participating businesses and organizations. During the week, middle and high school students will gain on-the-job experiences that will help them see how the skills they learn in school are put to use in the workplace.
