Florida CareerLINK President Sits on Panel
at Enterprise Florida Strategic Planning Session

Clearwater, FL (July 12, 2006) – Florida CareerLINK president and co-founder Pamela Kauten spoke before a group of regional group of business and government leaders yesterday on the topic of economic factors impacting Tampa Bay’s employment market.

She appeared on a panel addressing regional education and workforce issues along with Renee Benton, president of Tampa Bay Workforce Alliance, and Dr. Gary Norris, superintendent of schools for Sarasota County. The panelists spoke at the Tampa Bay Partnership and Enterprise Florida’s Roadmap to Florida’s Future Strategic Plan for Economic Development Forum at Franklin Templeton in St. Petersburg.

Kauten cited a dearth of affordable housing stock, lower wages (in comparison to other U.S. regions) for highly skilled workers, and talent poaching attempts by other cities and industries as significant threats to Tampa Bay businesses seeking top candidates. Her remarks were quoted in a St. Petersburg Times article about the event in the July 12 edition of the newspaper’s business section.
