Celebrating 35 Years
In 1982 Hope Coryer did something no one else had done in the North Country. She opened a business that connected people with opportunity. Now, 35 years later, the company she founded thrives in no small part due to the lessons she taught the ETS family throughout the years.” Deb Cleary, President/CEO of ETS, Inc. stated, “As a 16 year veteran of the company my mom started, I’m proud of the business we’ve built. Myself and the 24 person team here in Plattsburgh and now Burlington, VT have become experts in workforce issues and challenges and work every day to solve our client’s problems and allow them to focus on their businesses.”
ETS Donates $25,000 to the IAM to Commemorate Long History of Workforce Development
ETS, Inc. is thrilled to announce that to commemorate and continue their long history of workforce development in the area, they have donated $25,000 to The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing (IAM) at Clinton Community College. With this donation, one of the new classrooms will be named the “ETS Electronics Technology Lab.”
“Not just a business, this is our home. From the beginning, my mom made it a priority to give back to the community. As we proudly continue to build upon those efforts, helping hundreds of clients and tens of thousands of candidates connect to each other over the last 3.5 decades, we are honored to now include the IAM on this list.” continued Cleary.
The momentous opening of the IAM is only amplified by the area’s rapidly expanding manufacturing industry. Cleary stated, “As ETS strives to stay on top of evolving trends, we’re ready to take on the future of staffing with an array of exciting new tools. ETS has recently invested in systems and technology to bring the most advanced tools to source top talent to fill the excellent opportunities that North Country employers offer. We will be rolling out technology solutions to help predict better matches between clients and candidates in the hopes of being able to make real progress in solving retention issues.”
