Helping the Hard to Serve
Impact Employment Solutions requested assistance in locating qualified candidates to fill open positions with their customers. Impact Employment Solutions has worked closely with the Michigan Works Monroe Service Center and with the Re-Entry Liaison, Cari Grahl, as Impact has several accounts that are open to hiring individuals with a felony. Impact Employment Solutions has participated in several hiring events, Employer Spotlight and participates in bi-monthly Job Club for the Prisoner Re-Entry program. During the most recent quarter (July-September 2017), Impact Employment Solutions has hired and placed 48 job seekers into local jobs.
Norm Wicklund, Branch Manager, stated “The relationship between Impact and Michigan Works! is irreplaceable.” He feels the partnership has been successful and “Cari has been great to work with. Her follow up with Impact and the job seekers is thorough and supportive.” Norm is delighted with the relationship with Michigan Works! and plans to continue utilizing the services offered at their local Michigan Works! Service Center.
