Helping Organizations Reopen Safely - More Than 8500 Employees Served
COVID-19 has changed the way we operate in the workplace. Piedmont Triad Regional Workforce Development Board has developed a two-module training program. Organizations participating in the Workplace Restart initiative receive COVID-19 specific safety training.
Piedmont Triad Regional Council is pleased to announce a resource to help businesses reopen and individuals find jobs. The launch of the website is especially timely as our region’s economy rebounds from the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be a valuable resource for local workers seeking jobs as well as for businesses looking to recruit.
