The most unique aspect of the Lehigh Valley Inter-regional Networking & Connecting consortium is the regional effort that has brought together forward-thinking and prestigious companies both large and small, health organizations, higher education, K-12 area schools, government agencies and non-profit organizations. The collaborative effort on the part of each organization speaks to the level of need growing regionally addressing the retention and recruitment of highly-skilled and highly educated employees.
The difficulty employers face in retaining professionals is often due to life challenges experienced by today’s work force. Primary issues that modern professionals face include dual career (accompanying spouse/partner) challenges and successful integration of new hires and/or families into their new community. LINC addresses both professional and personal connections by providing a network of resources, pre-hire and career support and community and cultural transition support.
LINC offers an innovative workforce development plan. It is built on a foundation of its members and partners who are committed to providing a personalized hands-on approach to supporting their potential candidates, new and relocated hires. This fee-for-service non-profit organization is a unique resource for employers and businesses in the region who seek to enhance their recruiting and retention efforts.
