Rock Falls chamber offers free hiring tips webinar

ROCK FALLS – Rock Falls Chamber of Commerce will present a free Zoom webinar, “Hiring Tips For Today’s Market,” at 2 p.m. April 27.

Ashlee Alber from Culver’s, Suzy Perino from Sauk Valley Bank, and Keri Olson from United Way of Whiteside County will be the panelists.

Chamber officials have been fielding complaints about the difficulty of hiring people, which they say is a side-effect of the pandemic nationwide.

Among the complaints: There are not enough workers, we are short-staffed (again); I can’t find the right people to join my team; I keep getting nothing but unqualified applications and no one is applying; people keep stealing my good staff and it’s hard to replace them.

Any businesses that are hiring or trying to keep a team together are encouraged to sign up at sam@rockfallschamber.com or 815-625-4500.
