As the printing and converting industry continues to experience the well-known gap in its workforce it is more important than ever that the industry come together to develop new ideas and concepts to create a strong channel of incoming talent. TLMI and the Phoenix Challenge Foundation are passionate about the sustainability of the industry and look forward to working together on the common mission of facilitating programs that will help recruit new, sustain existing, and continue to develop talented employees and future leaders for the package printing industry.
Bettylyn Krafft, Chair of the Phoenix Challenge Foundation remarks, “It is a true pleasure to work together with Dan Muenzer, Jessica Johnson and the Workforce Development Committee of TLMI on this important task. Bringing young talent into the label printing industry has been my sole passion for more than 20 years. Uniting with TLMI will only help strengthen the charge and drive further success in creating tomorrow’s workforce.”
TLMI’s new Program Director, Jessica Johnson, will lead the workforce development initiatives for the association. She says, “TLMI is excited about strengthening our relationship with Bettylyn and the Phoenix Challenge Foundation. Investing in the education and success of our future workforce is an important priority to our organization. As the industry evolves and the need for strong, skilled talent continues to grow TLMI and the Phoenix Challenge Foundation need to expand our programs and our resources to give our future workforce the tools they need to be successful.”
