Dear Personnel Source:
This letter is to congratulate you on being nominated to receive a 2009 BOLI Business Award. Although you weren’t select as one of this year’s winners in our three categories of Civil Rights Champion, Fair Workplaces Champion and Workforce Development Champion, I wanted to make sure that you are aware of the very favorable impression that you have created in the community.
You were nominated as a Workforce Development Champion by Sue Bloom. The nomination from that received said a lot of complimentary things about your work to advance workforce development, but I wanted to share a couple of the most complimentary things:
“Salem Branch Manager, Dean Craig, has a strong commitment to workforce development in our community. He is an active partner in Ready to Learn Ready to Work.” The program, “supports our youth by providing them insight into employer expectations, resumes writing and mock interviews.”
Thank you for the outstanding contribution that you are making to our community. I look forward to seeing your company nominated again in the future as you continue to set an example for other Oregon employers to emulate.
If BOLI or I can be of assistance to you in the future, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Oregon Labor Commissioner
