WORKFORCE EMPLOYER OUTREACH COMMITTEE FORMED
KNOX COUNTY BUSINESSES GET INVOLVED
NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announces the formation of local Workforce Employer Outreach Committees (WEOC) across the state. The committees are an ongoing effort by the department to reach out to Tennessee employers and get valuable information to foster economic development and promote departmental services.
In Knox County a chairman and vice chairman have been named for the committee. Ms. Pam Caughman, Recruiting Department Manager for Cendant Corporation, will chair the WEOC. Ms. Amy Rector, Benefits Manager for Scripps Networks, will serve as vice-chair.
The committee is open to employers wishing to become involved. Some of the benefits of joining are the following: to have an opportunity to share ideas and concerns with the Department of Labor and Workforce Development; to enhance your company's awareness of employment issues and legislation that affects your business operation; to gain a better understanding of the many programs and services the department provides; and an opportunity to network with various divisions within the department and build a personal working relationship with an employer services specialist from the department.
Upcoming seminars and workshops planned for the Knox County WEOC include workers' compensation, adult education, drug-free workplace, senior employment, Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health, unemployment insurance, Work Opportunity Tax Credit and many more.
