The Pima County One-Stop Career Center has funds for health-care employers to participate in a pilot training program aimed at improving employee performance and retention.

One-Stop is offering $24,000 per employer for up to five employers.

The training is for:

-New employees who went through Pima Community College's Pathways to Healthcare program, designed to help low-income individuals move into good-paying health-care occupations, or

-Existing, entry-level employees who meet the Pathways to Healthcare criteria and who the employer believes need to improve their performance to retain their jobs.

The training can include customer service, interpersonal skills, work ethic, attitude, time management, reliability, workplace relationships, safety protocols, clinical practice protocols, company policies and procedures, or other topics the employer needs.

One-Stop will work with the employer to determine employee eligibility, develop a training plan, and provide reimbursement at $30 an hour for one-on-one orientation training for 20 hours a week for four weeks for up to 10 employees per company.

The pilot program runs through Sept. 30, 2014. Additional funding and time may be added depending upon the success of the pilot project.

Contact Dorothee Harmon at 520-243-6760 or Dorothee.Harmon@pima.gov to learn more about the pilot program.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
