ACT WORK READY COMMUNITY
The Work Ready Community certification is a nationally recognized program that pairs employers' support with assessments of employees and job seekers. Tom Green County was recognized in August 2017 as the second Work Ready Community in Texas, which will help attract new businesses to the area. Further, local employers can use the program's tools to hire and promote employees into optimal positions. That leads to reduced training costs, lower turnover, improved operations and customer service, and higher profits.
