Uniland Vice President Michael J. Montante highlights the importance of attracting young workers to strengthen the Western New York economy. Speaking at a Buffalo Business First Thought Leaders series, sponsored by Hodgson Russ LLP, he noted that some clients want to expand by finding qualified candidates.
“It is very competitive when it comes to recruiting young professionals and millennials,” Mr. Montante said. “If we want our economy to grow and expand, we need to do a better job in attracting young talent.”
Recognizing the region’s high quality of life and affordability, Buffalo is outpacing the national average in young adult population growth.
In addition to helping organizations identify the best environments for their businesses to thrive, Uniland has been an active player in supporting local workforce development and collaborating with schools, universities and community partners to strengthen Buffalo Niagara’s emerging workforce.
