80 businesses and 461 jobs saved!
As the fiscal year comes to an end, The Valley Economic Alliance (TVEA) wrapped up it’s Layoff Aversion program, that offers one on one assessments, solutions and alternatives to layoffs.
The business assistance team at the Alliance personally met with and assisted 80 businesses within the Los Angeles region and saved 461 jobs! The team focused on restaurants regarding issues with the recent minimum wage increase, less than A health department ratings, Americans with Disabilities Act compliance, cost containment, and on-the-job training programs.
For the past 4 years, TVEA has joined forces with the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation and the Los Angeles Workforce Investment Board to offer confidential and complimentary consultations to San Fernando Valley businesses. This work is performed via contracts with the County and City of L.A., saving thousands of local jobs each year.
