WIB working on plan to avert layoffs

‘At-risk’ industries identified, targeted for work force training
A consulting firm has identified the five most at-risk “industry clusters” in the region as well as work force training programs available to them in an effort to help avert layoffs.
That information will be the basis of a layoff diversion strategy developed soon that will help the West Piedmont Workforce Investment Board more strategically use about $175,000 in available local funds and to leverage state funds, according to Kim Adkins, executive director of WPWIB.
