PA Secretary of Labor & Industry Visits the Valley
August 13, 2018
Ideal Concepts, Inc. was invited to participate in a panel and luncheon today at PA CareerLink of the Lehigh Valley with Pennsylvania Secretary of Labor & Industry, Jerry Oleksiak. Ideal Concepts President John Pequeno spoke to the Secretary about our massive hiring efforts in the Lehigh Valley, and how CareerLink has helped us recruit quality candidates over the years.

CareerLink of LV is a collaborative project linking job seekers and employers, as well as providing access to job training, education and employment services to residents in Lehigh and Northampton Counties. Through their On the Job Training (OJT) program, Ideal Concepts has recruited and hired more than twenty individuals over the years. Approximately 80% of our OJT participants stayed with Ideal Concepts for a year or more after the program ended.

Mr. Oleksiak was also in the Lehigh Valley to highlight the new PASmart initiative, a $30 million workforce development initiative helping connecting Pennsylvanians with resources for work and training. In addition, CareerLink announced they will be relaunching their job seeking website- JobGateway will change to PA CareerLink later this week.

This is not the first time Ideal Concepts has been recognized for our outstanding hiring and workforce development success by the Pennsylvania government. Last year, we received a Governor's Achievement Award for creating successful employment opportunities in our community.
