MFG Employers, how can you make this applicable to you?

Georgia Mountains Works - MFG Sector Employer Partners determine occupational and workgroup project priorities. They post their job openings and are given priority for workforce development opportunities. They attend up to 10 Strategy, Workgroup, or Employer Partnership meetings and tours per year.

Hot and fresh off the line rolls for MFG Sector Employer Tour participants! After the tour we had a great discussion about the company's Ohana philosophy and investment into workforce development. Thanks Terry and Jerry for hosting us at King's Hawaiian Bakery.
