Sangamon County, via The Chamber’s Q5 Workforce and Education Council, is working to become the first county in Illinois to be a Certified Work Ready Community (CWRC). “Work Ready Sangamon” has achieved 77 percent of its goals and has 26 businesses supporting the initiative. Additional companies are asked to show their support and can do so by CLICKING HERE.
Employers that recognize this certification from applicants can use its ranking to assess an individual’s chance for success within their organization. The certification will help businesses hire the most qualified people for opportunities within their organization, which leads to lower turnover and employment costs.
Companies wishing to support and recognize this initiative should contact Sarah Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org or (217) 525-1173.
