ANDERSON COUNTY WORKFORCE EMPLOYER OUTREACH COMMITTEE FORMED
DEPARTMENT REACHES OUT TO EMPLOYERS
- 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 Anderson County, a chairman, vice chairman and secretary have been
named for the committee. Dr. Stacy Myers, founder and president of Advanced
Management, Inc., will chair the WEOC. Jack Ready, plant manager of Carlisle
Tire and Rim Company, will serve as vice chair. Jennifer Wilson is appointed
as secretary for the group. Ms. Wilson is project manager for the Oak
Ridge Economic Partnership.
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.
The first program will address the changes to the Worker's Compensation
Law. Future sessions will include discussions regarding the Tennessee
Career Center, adult education, drug-free workplace, Tennessee Occupational
Safety and Health, unemployment insurance, and many more.

Committee, please contact Stacy Myers at 865-483-9500.
