Workforce Challenge

Tammy is a single mother of six. When she was referred to Michigan Works! from DHHS, she was struggling to make ends meet while working part-time at a service company. She needed to find full-time work to be able to support her family.

Workforce Solution

At Michigan Works!, Tammy worked with Talent Specialist Mary and Case Managers Liz and Michelle. Tammy received resume assistance, mileage assistance for work related activities, clothing assistance to provide proper work clothing, and a referral to a job position.

Outcomes & Benefits

With the help of Michigan Works! Tammy was hired on the spot with full-time employment (40+ hours per week) at Starbest Construction, which is building the new Holiday Inn Express in Alpena. Tammy is now moving up in her position at Starbest, and after the construction is complete, she will be hired on full-time by Holiday Inn Express. Starbest is impressed with Tammy’s performance and even allowed her to sit in on the Holiday Inn Express interviews to help pick new employees for the opening.
