Workforce Challenge

Victory Energy Solutions is a model business when it comes to taking on the "green" challenge. The business began in 2009 focusing on high quality energy management services. In order for the business to get off to an optimal start, they needed a workforce certified with the "green" technical skills as well as exemplary soft "people" skills that would help their business prosper. The workforce system, CTWorks, education partners and the Jobs Funnel had what it took to get the job done.

Workforce Solution

In order to build their workforce, several Jobs Funnel candidates were given On-the-Job training opportunities. Others were hired after obtaining key certifications through the Jobs Funnel. To grow the skills of their existing workers, Victory Energy Solutions continues to provide incumbent worker training to meet increasingly sophisticated certifications required by the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund.

Outcomes & Benefits

Victory Energy Solutions has grown tremendously and is now up to a workforce of 20. They not only provide jobs, they help their customers save money and perform a service that is of great benefit to the environment. Owners, Raquel Kennedy, Paul Keyes and Mike Gionfredo were recognized as "workforce stars" for their business in June 2010, and they are positioned to grow, creating jobs for the region far into the future.
