Workforce Solutions (WFS) Cameron was recognized for outstanding board performance, receiving a $15,000 Performance Incentive Award for Workforce Investment Act Adult and Dislocated Worker Training-Related Employment at the Texas Workforce Commission’s (TWC) 17th Annual Texas Workforce Conference, held December 4-6 in San Antonio. The Performance Incentive Awards recognize boards that display increased accountability and improved efficiencies. The award funds will be used to enhance workforce service programs during the next year.
WFS Cameron, serving Cameron County, is one of 28 local workforce boards located throughout the state. The primary goal of TWC and the workforce boards is to respond to needs of Texas employers and workers through locally designed, market-driven workforce development initiatives and services. All employers, workers and job seekers are eligible to take advantage of these services.
Pat Hobbs, Executive Director for WFS Cameron, gives credit for this competitive accomplishment to the local Board of Directors, his local board staff, and the staff of Southwest Key Workforce Development, LLC, who is subcontracted to deliver direct services to workforce clients. It is a partnership effort of these entities each year to develop and implement the wide array of procedures that deliver the performance required to attain these statewide incentive awards. WFS Cameron and Southwest Key will continue to deliver workforce services to eligible adults, dislocated workers, and youth in an effective and efficient manner to the benefit of their clients.
