The establishment of Workforce Employer Outreach Committees (WEOC) is part of an ongoing effort to reach out to employers across Tennessee. The committees provide two-way communication between the Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the state's employer community. This relationship encourages economic development, promotes departmental services, facilitates the distribution of policies and information, and improves awareness of the capabilities of the one-stop Career Center System.
The mission of each WEOC is to provide a direct link between Tennessee's employer community and the Commissioner of the Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
There are six Public Relations Specialists across the state ready to assist employers with departmental needs. The public relations specialists meet with employers and serve as a direct link with the Commissioner of the Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Public relation specialists organize and maintain the Workforce Employer Outreach Committees.
For additional information or to be contacted by a public relations specialist in your area, please contact Ron.Hammontree@tn.gov or call 615-741-8892.
