Meet Wright Tree Service

Workforce Challenge

Christopher, the project manager for a local business - Wright Tree Service - approached Emilio, a Business Engagement Representative with Workforce Boulder County. Wright Tree Service was finding it difficult to obtain people to fill their vacancies!

Workforce Solution

Several suggestions were offered to assist this employer. They were included in the WY/CO Job Fair, and flyers were posted in the Boulder and Longmont WfBC offices. Additionally, Christopher met with the WfBC Employment Advisors who provided current Labor and Employment Statistics for the Boulder County area regarding wages and benefits. It was also suggested that he include the advertised wages, benefits, and the job description on the flyers.

Outcomes & Benefits

The employer raised the offered wages and followed through on the other suggestions. Within the first two weeks Christopher reported they received 13 applicants and made 7 job offers. Plus, they continued to receive referrals from WfBC. Christopher said, "The relationship established with the workforce center has made it much easier to reach qualified candidates to fill our positions!"
