Guest Speaker: Ellie Giles, CEO, WorkSource Montgomery

Topic: Find Talent Ready for Hire

Gigi Godwin introduced Ellie Giles, the newly appointed CEO to WorkSource Montgomery. Dr. Giles said how excited she is to be in this new role at a new organization that is rethinking the way we manage workforce. It is about talent development and the needs of the businesses. WorkSource Montgomery is changing the conversation so that the #1 customer is the employer and the #1 benefactor is the job seeker.

Giles provided background of the Montgomery Moving Forward group that got this conversation started. The timing was ideal as there are a number of new regulations that allow her to be more creative in seeing that talent drives economic competitiveness. The new focus is an integrated system.

WorkSource Montgomery is supported by active boards and alliances that work to make sure the right policies are in place.

The goal is to be the gold standard in talent development and she encouraged everyone to be involved in helping to make that happen.
