We can help YOU too!
"[The] team at WorkSourceOne have been a key resource & partner throughout the Greenpac hiring process. Not only did they facilitate several informational sessions prior to our hiring, but they provided us support through the entire interview process. I can honestly say without them, our process would not have been as smooth and successful as it has been. I believe this partnership is the reason we have been able to attract and hire mostly Niagara County candidates who we are very excited to add to our team!"
- LeeMarie Phillips, HR Manager Greenpac Mill LLC
“Niagara’s WorkSourceOne One Stop Center, funded through the Workforce Investment Act, is a key partner in our region’s economic development efforts….the impact…custom training made to our company is significant. During a 40% drop in our industry, we were able to grow, and added 6 new employees. Without the training, we would have never been able to accomplish this within a one year period. Without this grant we would not have been so aggressive in our training, and that would have a direct impact on our growth.”
- Rob Albert, President of Impressive Imprints (North Tonawanda)
“With the help of a grant we received through the Workforce Investment Act funds we were able to institute a “lean manufacturing” program in our factory. We export over 65% of the product we manufacture, and competition from China, India, etc. has been very damaging. The “lean” manufacturing program has significantly reduced manufacturing costs enabling us to be more competitive when quoting against companies which manufacture the same products outside the U.S.”
- Carol Calato, Vice President of J.D. Calato Manufacturing Company, Inc. (Niagara Falls)
“As a small shop it is hard for me to hire someone without the knowledge to be an immediate benefit to me, but training money like On-the-Job Training helps me bring on someone with little or no machining knowledge and train them in a new career path. I’ve used the program in the past and it worked out very well”.
- Ken Moore, President of Dern Moore Machine Co., Inc. (Lockport)
“If the “name of the game” is jobs, this is the only program that will help…..It’s programs like this that enable a small businessman to hire and train people in a bad economy. In fact, I would not have been able to hire a new employee without WIA help.”
- Murry DeFranco, Owner of DeFranco Insurance Agency, Inc. (Niagara Falls)
"Several of the individuals I hired through the Breakfast Clubs are turning out to be excellent employees!”
- Rivershore Inc. (Lewiston)
