Ring The Bell – July 2014

Posted on by Jerry

leti-july-2014Leticia Torres is one of the two remaining staff members hired when Benton and Franklin counties took over the Adult and Dislocated Workers Programs in 2010.  She has successfully managed conflicting deadlines while continuing to serve our clients and employers.

Lety is a silent leader, a gracious competitor, and a team player, remaining poised and confident while meeting her goals.  She is our team’s cheerleader and the first to recognize her co-workers’ successes.  She is always willing to provide peer support to staff including our WorkSource partners.

Lety represents Career Path Services as the safety chair for Benton and Franklin counties, and is the chair for WSCB.  She is the go-to person for policy review and offers value feedback to policies and procedures, ensuring  organizational success.  She leads the Dislocated Worker team in facilitating quarterly job clubs.  She is also an active member and lead for our local Rapid Response team and Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Lety’s desire to grow professionally leads her to look for opportunities to increase the resources she has available to assist her customers in finding employment;   Young Professionals and Prolango Mixers events are two examples.

Lety is on track to complete her best program year to date.  She has met 14 of 17 programmatic goals and placed 35 dislocated workers into employment with an average exit wage of $19.75/hour.
