Axalta Participates In Panel Discussion On Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA)

Published August 4, 2014
Axalta Coating Systems’ Learning and Development Specialist, Virginia Gronley participated on a panel to discuss the upcoming changes to the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) titled, Inside WIOA: How Will Federal Changes Affect Southeast Michigan Workforce?  Formerly known as WIA, the revised act is now called Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA).

The Workforce Intelligence Network and Macomb Community College hosted the event.  The discussion focused on how to respond to the needs of the long-term unemployed and how employers and the public sector can better collaborate locally and regionally.

Axalta’s Mt. Clemens facility employs hundreds of area residents.  “We continue to partner with our local Michigan Works office on important initiatives like the On-The-Job Training program.  We also participate on local boards and strategize on how we can work together to meet the skills demand for hiring,” says Gronley.  “Recently, a local employer laid off several employees and through our relationship with Michigan Works, we were notified in the event we may have a need. This is just one example of how we can collaborate together to continue to address the concerns around unemployment in Southeast Michigan.”
