GREENE, N.Y. — This March, The Raymond Corporation teamed up with local organizations to host a Best Practices for Business seminar for businesses in Broome, Chenango, Delaware and Otsego counties. Through collaboration with the New York State Department of Labor, Chenango County Job Service Employer Committee (JSEC), Commerce Chenango, Chenango-Delaware-Otsego (CDO) Workforce and Morrisville State College Norwich Campus, businesses were invited to attend a free seminar at Raymond’s headquarters to learn more about best business practices and services.

Key speakers from the New York State Department of Labor — such as Nicole Burns, supervising labor services representative for the Unemployment Insurance Division, and Robert Crounse, human resources consultant for the Division of Employment and Workforce Solutions — covered layoff alternatives, on-the-job training, recruitment and other areas related to education and business development.. “Coming from a relatively small office environment, all of our employees must wear many hats,” says JoAnne Young, senior accounts manager for Empire Natural Gas Corporation in Greene, N.Y. “I appreciated the opportunity to attend this local seminar and learn some valuable facts, as well as services that could prove to be beneficial to a business like ours.”

In the fall of 2012, Raymond plans to host a second Best Practices for Business seminar.
