RPM Staffing received the Employer Award of Excellence for the Workforce Solutions Northeast Texas (Northeast Texas) area at the Texas Workforce Commission’s (TWC) 22nd Annual Texas Workforce Conference held Nov. 28 – 30 in Houston. The award honors private sector employers that are actively involved with Texas Workforce Solutions and have made a positive impact on employers, workers and the community.
The Employer Award of Excellence honors one private-sector employer in each local workforce development area that is actively involved with Texas Workforce Solutions. This award recognizes an employer that has, as a customer and collaborator with the Local Workforce Development Board (Board), created and used innovative approaches that have benefited the local economy and workforce significantly. These employers were chosen from many employers with whom Boards connect to prepare today’s workforce for tomorrow’s Texas.
“Texas leads the nation in job creation because we continue to build and support partnerships that effectively connect employers to workers and equip job seekers with the innovative skills to help them succeed,” said TWC Commissioner Representing the Public Robert D. Thomas. “RPM Staffing deserves applause this year for its efforts in partnering with Northeast Texas to create amazing opportunities for Texas workers and communities.”
Northeast Texas was awarded the Service to Business Award, which recognizes a Local Workforce Development Board that has demonstrated innovative approaches to meeting employer needs through recruiting, hiring, training, and upgrading employee skills, as well as the Foster Youth Award from TWC and the Workforce Investment Opportunity Act Exemplary Performance Award, which are accompanied by grants totaling $60,000.
Northeast Texas is among 28 local workforce boards located throughout the state. The board serves Bowie, Cass, Delta, Franklin, Hopkins, Lamar, Morris, Red River and Titus counties. The primary goal of TWC and the workforce boards is to meet the needs of Texas employers and workers through locally-designed, market-driven workforce development initiatives and services. All employers, workers and job seekers are eligible to take advantage of these services.
