Dear Employer

Because of the tremendous number of layoffs and plant closings in the area, businesses are finding that they are inundated with applicants.  However, not all of the applicants have the skills that are needed by the employers.  We, at the Workforce Development department of the Coosa Valley Regional Development Center are researching area companies to determine their employee training needs.  This department implements the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), which was established to provide assistance to individuals in need of job training and placement, and to employers in need of skilled workers.  WIA provides programs for adults, displaced workers, and youth.  Federal money is available to workers for training through these programs and to employers who train them.  We would like your insight and input into the current needs of your company and your projected needs for the next three-year period.  Are there special skills and/or training that you would like to see available for the potential workforce? 

 Please take the time to review the survey and provide the information for your business.  Your assistance in this is greatly appreciated and it will be used to design the ideal services for individuals needing retraining to meet employersí needs.  For those completing the survey we will provide the report once it is completed. 

If you have questions or would like additional information please call our office at (706) 295-6485 or 1-800-332-1965 or visit our website at www.careerdepot.org
