[DWD] Media Advisory: DWD and its WorkOne Centers to Honor Outstanding Hoosier Job-Seekers and Employers

Entry Description


INDIANAPOLIS  – The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and its WorkOne Centers will honor WorkOne clients and employers from throughout the state at the 2013 WorkOne Achievement Awards ceremony. This event will recognize 12 Indiana employers who have faithfully created jobs and personal advancement opportunities for Hoosier workers utilizing WorkOne services and programs, as well as 12 individuals for their dedication to improving their lives through WorkOne education, training and employment services, as well as personal sacrifice.

In addition, honors will be given to a participant and employer who have been integral to the success of the WorkOne Hoosier Initiative for Re-Entry (HIRE) program. The HIRE program is a collaborative effort between WorkOne, the Indiana Department of Corrections and participating Indiana employers to educate, train and successfully transition eligible ex-offenders from incarceration back into society and employment. The goal of HIRE is to ensure participating employers retain the workforce they need to be successful while mitigating the risk of offender recidivism, which costs millions in taxpayer money each year.

The awards ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 in the South Atrium of the Statehouse. The event is open to the public. The Master of Ceremonies will be Emmy Award-winning WTHR Channel 13 reporter Kevin Rader. DWD Commissioner Scott B. Sanders will be on hand to present the awards. Other distinguished guests, local elected officials, state legislators and statewide office-holders will be in attendance to recognize recipients.
