Mass. governor awards Workers CU training grant
FITCHBURG, Mass. (4/25/08)--Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced that the Workers' CU will receive $76,665 in Workforce Training Grant funding to train 151 employees. He made the announcement last week at a press conference at Fitchburg's City Hall. The grant is part of the administration's strategy to make investments that create a culture of opportunity focused on restrained spending and long- and short-term investment, while preparing for the effects of a softening economy, he said. Training will be in a range of areas. The state in the next 90 days will expedite the release of more than $18 million in grants to 200 companies throughout Massachusetts to train more than 16,000 workers in every region of the state. "The funds from the grant will be used to improve the skills and knowledge of our employees through programs such as innovation and team building, financial management, business lending and sales, advanced computer software and continuous quality improvement," said Workers' CU President/CEO Frederick D. Healey in a press release. "Our goal in training is to maximize the value of our internal human resources so that we can better serve our members and local businesses. The grant will go a long way in helping us reach this goal," Healey added. Workers CU has $550 million in assets and serves more than 63,000 members.
