The City of Moreno Valley is proud to announce its Employment Resource Center Relaunch took home a first place finish at the Inland Empire Economic Partnership’s (IEEP) Fourth Annual "Turning Red Tape to Red Carpet" Awards.
The Cooperation Among Cities, Counties or Agencies award was given to the City of Moreno Valley for its success in modernizing the Employment Resource Center (ERC) to better serve employers, workforce and economic development professionals and job seekers.
The City was also named IEEP’s runner-up for its Sustainability and Green Development award for ALDI’s Sustainable LEED Gold Certified Moreno Valley Headquarters and Distribution Center, and a finalist for the Business Retention & Expansion award for its Momentum MoVal Business Visitation Program.
The IEEP’s award honors agencies that have developed innovative ways to avoid bureaucratic red tape to improve local economies and communities.
"The City of Moreno Valley is committed to making it easy for companies to do business in our City and for job seekers to find the right opportunities to get back to work," said Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez. "Innovating through the red tape and rolling out the red carpet strengthens the regional economy and puts people back to work."
The City of Moreno Valley used a $53,000 grant from the Western Regional Council of Governments to give the ERC a complete facelift.
Since opening its doors in 2009, the ERC has helped boost local employment rates, create jobs and raise the quality of life for residents of Moreno Valley and the region.
In 2016, staff embarked on the ERC Relaunch program that included an upgraded computer lab, new paint, carpet and window treatments, a faster internet connection and new computer operating system and software.
For job seekers, the ERC is a welcoming space where friendly and knowledgeable staff members help residents access vital services such as:
- A Hot Jobs Posting Board
- Monthly Workshops (such as Resume Building)
- Interview Preparation / Mock Interviews
- Job Fairs
- One-on-one Assistance
- Computer, copier, fax, and internet access (for job purposes only).
- Resource Library
- Veterans Career Services
For employers, ERC staff members help with candidate screenings, job fairs, job recruitment postings, and much more. The ERC is located at 12625 Frederick Street, Suite K-3, in the TownGate Center and is open Monday-Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
