B&I Contractors Human Resources Director Mchael Biskie has been appointed to the State of Florida Credentials Review Committee. This new committee will serve under the Reimagining Education and Career Help (REACH) Act –a Florida House Bill approved in the 2021 session. Biskie joins a roster of 16 industry, education and workforce development leaders who will bring additional rigor and accountability to the state’s workforce and education systems.
The REACH Act was “created to address the evolving needs of Florida’s economy by increasing the level of collaboration and cooperation among state businesses and education communities while improving training within and equity and access to a more integrated workforce and education system for all Floridians,” the state legislature says.
The Credentials Review Committee will play a vital role in ensuring the alignment of education and skill training with the current and future demands of the industry. “Biskie’s commitment and dedication to this effort will help support the goal of building a stronger and more competitive Florida workforce,” B&I says in a statement.
Biskie has nearly 30 years of experience working in human resources and serves as human resources director for B&I Contractors. He retired from the Navy Reserve in 2007 after serving in the U.S. Navy for over 26 years.
He also serves on the CareerSource Southwest Florida Board of Directors. He previously served as Chair of the CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion Board of Directors and vice-chair of the National Association of Workforce Boards.
