Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technology’s president, John Ricciardelli, serves as the chair of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Workforce Development Committee. The committee’s goals are to help attract new employees to regional employers for skilled and trade positions and retain existing talent in the region. The committee is working with businesses, higher education, K-12, trade schools, innovation campuses, and faith-based leaders to develop a shared understanding of workforce needs, opportunities, and barriers.
The Honeywell FM&T team is also working to promote and connect these career paths to students. Honeywell is partnering with key civic organizations including not only the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, but also the Civic Council and Kansas City Area Development Council, to spearhead workforce development in our community and connect the new generation to careers in manufacturing.
