Meet Paul

Workforce Challenge

Paul was a veteran who had retired from the private industry but now wanted to return to work part time. The challenge was finding suitable work, that was close to home, and offered on a part-time schedule. He was also concerned that his age would be a perceived disadvantage for employers.

Workforce Solution

Granby center staff assessed Paul’s job skills and learned that he had substantial experience with inventory and stocking and was familiar with the medical equipment industry. With the assistance of center staff, Paul was referred for a position at a small company handling shipping and receiving of medical equipment.

Outcomes & Benefits

Paul was hired as a Product Shipping Processor by Tens Products, a local company which provides medical devices to customers worldwide. The position had been unfilled for quite some time because of the part time hours. Both Paul and his new employer are very satisfied with the match.
