15th Annual Cecil County Job Fair


Susquehanna Workforce Network Announces 15th Annual Cecil County Job Fair




Susquehanna Workforce Network announces the launch of the 15th Annual Cecil County Job Fair. The event which previously ran successively is back after a 2 year hiatus due to Covid-19. Susquehanna Workforce Network will partner with the Cecil County Office of Economic Development and Cecil Business Resource Partners to bring the event back to Singerly Fire Company Banquet Hall. The event, which takes place on May 12th, will run from 12pm – 4pm.

Due to Covid-19 the event did not run in 2020 or 2021. Given the need for recruitment post pandemic, this event will be free for businesses to register and attend. The event is poised to bring over 50 employers to the Singerly Fire Company at 300 Newark Road in Elkton, making it the largest job fair in Cecil County.

Employers will meet with hopefuls who are looking to make a career transition or who are looking to reenter the workforce. Businesses will be utilizing aggressive tactics to secure talent, including non-traditional hiring methods. While not all employers apprise our organization with the details of their hiring strategies, it is likely some will be making offers on the spot.

SWN anticipates the release of a full list of employer’s one week prior to the event. Leading up to the event, Susquehanna Workforce Network will have two workforce center locations open and available for jobseekers to assist with résumé preparation and interview skills. Limited additional assistance will be available to jobseekers on-site.

The 15th Annual Cecil County Job Fair will always be free to attend for all jobseekers.

Top Employee Benefit to Boost Retention in 2022

By: Jessica Fessler

Physical Health Programs and Mental Health Programs were listed as the two most popular employee benefits of 2022, but what are prospective employee’s really looking for in these programs? Beyond standard health insurance, many consumers continue to value supplemental health services. Covid-19 had consumers using their health insurance benefits in record numbers; Consumers increased their intimate knowledge of how these services work in real time. Now, consumers are reevaluating which benefits offer considerable value.

Consumers have become savvier about health insurance in the years since the Affordable Care Act. An influx of cost-comparison tools has made it easier for users to compare employer contribution. Insignificant employer contribution is becoming more apparent. Employers who provide significant employer contributions have a competitive edge, but are still lacking. So what benefit speaks to the health insurance savvy, younger generations?

Three words- Premium Health Services.


Health Reimbursement Accounts are an employer funded health benefit plan that reimburses employees for out-of-pocket medical expenses, in some cases an HRA’s will cover health insurance plan premiums up front. The flexibility of an HRA offers employee’s the opportunity to make more personalized health decisions, including the ability to use premium health services that are not traditionally covered.

Boosted Mental Health Benefits

Due to the pandemic, mental health services are strained. Most emergency assistance programs lack a usable network of providers. Online telemed services are becoming increasingly more popular. Companies such as Ginger, are targeting employers by offering a structured telemed benefit similar to that of Cerebral and other online only mental health services. These services which are traditionally excluded from health insurance coverage, are generally eligible for HRA reimbursement.

Physical Health Programs

Due to Covid-19, consumers are spending more time in the home. Use of traditional health and wellness programs are fleeting. More consumers are leaning towards meal prep services and in-home gym equipment. Off-site health programs and gym equipment stipends will soon replace more traditional avenues of wellness benefits.

Benefit to Employers

The return on your non-traditional investment is simple. With burn-out rates skyrocketing, we’re beginning to see a shift in value. Consumers’ are placing self-care first. Candidates are quick to identify employers who genuinely value employee health and well-being. Demonstrating investment in employee health is not only a recruitment strategy; Development of a healthier workforce will result in higher retention rates.
