Existing Industry Programs
In an effort to better coordinate existing industry efforts of various economic and community development and workforce organizations serving Sullivan County, in 2014 NETWORKS launched the FIRST program. The program’s name is derived from the values on which it is built – Focus, Innovation, Results, Synergy, and Together – as well as an appropriate title of the economic development community’s prioritizing existing business and industry services.
Services and activities offered by the FIRST program include: one-on-one visits at companies, group meetings that help build a support system of economic development and workforce resources as well as peers for management and HR professionals, meaningful surveys and data collection (that offer results and useful information to our corporate citizens, not just from them), and various initiatives that address common issues among our major employers.
