Ventura, CA - The 2015 WIB Awards were presented at the annual meeting of the Workforce Investment Board (WIB) of Ventura County on June 18 at the Ventura County Office of Education. The annual awards program recognizes individuals, employers, organizations and partnerships for extraordinary work or volunteer efforts to advance workforce development in the Ventura County region.

“The WIB Award winners leverage workplace, partnership and networking opportunities to support work experience, training and career advancement that benefit employers and job seekers,” says Cheryl Moore, executive director of the WIB. “The award recipients are making a real contribution to the strength and competitiveness of the Ventura County workforce.”

WIB Youth Opportunity Award
The WIB Youth Opportunity Award goes to two organizations for providing internships or employment opportunities that help to grow and strengthen Ventura County's future workforce. One recipient is Douglas Wood, general manager at the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach. For over a decade, the hotel has welcomed more than 200 high school juniors and seniors from the Ventura Unified School District for one-month summer school internships. Students are given hands-on work opportunities in all phases of hotel management and are paired with Crowne Plaza mentors.

“Students benefit from real-life experiences and get a chance to see if hospitality is something that resonates with them,” says Wood. “While helping students, the internship program also helps our hotel to cultivate a workforce for the hospitality sector, which is one of the top three revenue-generating industries in the county. Through the program, we have hired full-time associates and part-time summer associates.”

Also receiving the WIB Youth Opportunity Award are Ralph Imondi and Linda Santschi, co-founders and scientific directors at Coastal Marine Biolabs (CMB) in Ventura Harbor. For more than nine years, the organization has engaged Ventura County high school students in an authentic research environment. Under the guidance of Imondi and Santschi, students gain an appreciation for the daily practice of science and contribute real data to the scientific community. Through national funding support, students are able to participate in research-based educational programs at no charge. CMB also makes innovative technology resources and training available to teachers to help them better prepare their students for life science careers.

“To participate productively in the 21st century scientific workforce, students will need to be conversant in a universal scientific language that bridges multiple life science domains,” says Santschi. “CMB’s programs are inherently multidisciplinary in scope, introducing students to scientific issues, concepts and methodologies with a level of depth and rigor that cannot be replicated in traditional learning settings.”
WIB Collaborative Action Award

The WIB Collaborative Action Award is for partnerships that help to meet employer needs, improve the relevance and capacity of education and workforce training and/or support business retention in Ventura County. There are four award recipients this year.

Tiffany Morse, Ph.D., director of career and technical education with the Ventura County Office of Education in Camarillo, has facilitated collaboration across multiple school districts, adult education and community colleges through the California Career Pathways Trust Grant initiative. “VC Innovates represents an unprecedented collaboration countywide to connect employers, education and the community to advance workforce education,” says Morse. “It has been a privilege to work with so many different organizations towards the same goal and to see that work rewarded with another $10 million investment from the state to expand and enhance our efforts.”

The WIB Collaborative Action Award also goes to biotechnology professor Subhash Karkare, Ph.D., at Moorpark College, Bill Pratt, vice-president of operations at Kinamed, Inc. in Camarillo and manufacturing technology professor Scot Rabe at Ventura College. The trio are recognized for their collaborative problem solving and long-term commitment to developing a two-campus Biomedical Device Manufacturing Certificate of Achievement program for Ventura County.

“The Biomedical Device Manufacturing Certificate provides students with an entry point to mid-level skilled positions in the medical device industry,” says Pratt. “These roles integrate the hands-on world with the intellectual disciplines required to maintain control and quality in the manufacturing environment. Similar programs recently instituted in other community college districts are graduating students into full-time employment after about two years of study.”

WIB Champion for Prosperity Award
The WIB Champion for Prosperity Award is presented to an individual or organization for supporting workforce development in Ventura County through job creation, job retention and business expansion or attraction.

This year, the award recognizes Tejas Patel, president of Laksh, Inc. in Camarillo. Already employing more than 30 workers, the full-service trucking company also has plans for growth. Since 2013, the company has worked with the America’s Job Center of California (AJCC) to offer opportunities to seven trainees. Trainees have moved forward in their careers and now have roles such as dispatcher, human resources recruiter and vehicle maintenance coordinator at the company.

“My experience with WIB-funded training is very positive,” says Patel. “The AJCC staff response to our needs has been excellent. We absolutely will use the program again.”

WIB Leadership Award
The WIB Leadership Award provides special recognition for a role model whose efforts and accomplishments embody the spirit and purpose of workforce development in Ventura County. Manuel Vega, CEO of Anacapa Water Blasting, Inc. in Oxnard, is this year’s award recipient. The company accesses WIB-funded training to help support workforce development, and Vega has helped to spread the word to other employers. Because of his endorsement, five other companies now successfully use WIB-sponsored employee training programs.

“The WIB program is a diamond in the rough for the small business person struggling to find quality employees. With the training funds, we have been able to develop several great long-term employees,” says Vega. “The WIB program provides the needed means to help both the employer and employee through the “learning curve” cycle.”

Members of the WIB are appointed by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors and include leaders from business, economic development, education, labor, government and community-based organizations.

The Ventura County government is the second-largest employer in the county—after the US military—with more than 8,000 people working in numerous locations. County employees work as lawyers, firefighters, administrative assistants, forensic specialists, nurses, public-safety officers, groundskeepers, veterinarians, human resources personnel and just about any other profession you can name. So what does it take to get hired into this huge workforce?

The 2014-2015 Ventura County Grand Jury received a public complaint about the county’s recruiting/hiring/promoting processes. Of particular interest were applicant screening, testing and interviewing procedures, which the complaint alleged could hamper selecting the best employees. Why don’t hiring department’s key staffers get to review applications of potential hires, instead of just human resources personnel? Why are persons who serve on a rating panel for applicants taking civil service exams told not to ask or answer any questions not on a preapproved list? Why can’t a “subject matter expert” who helps write exam questions also serve as a rater?

The grand jury investigated by gathering information from the county’s personnel rules and regulations, interviewing county personnel, studying county webpages, performing general Internet research and reading news articles.

The grand jury learned the following key facts:
• The county’s 28 organizational entities have highly specialized personnel needs, from police officers to children’s services experts, as well as more general needs, for example, administrative assistants.
• A Human Resources Division consisting of more than 125 staff members provides services from a central location or from satellite units within agencies located elsewhere. They have wide-ranging responsibilities. Hiring and promotion alone involve at least 15 strictly defined and consistent steps; among them are assigning job classifications and salary ranges, recruiting and screening applications, overseeing interviews and doing background checks.
• Personnel rules and regulations adopted by the county’s Board of Supervisors govern every aspect of recruiting, hiring and promoting county employees. Many of these rules aim to make sure that personnel processes are fair and candidates compete on an even playing field. The county regularly updates its Equal Employment Opportunity plan, which includes activities to recruit applicants from among diverse cultural groups and women.
• Nationwide, the number of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filings alleging employment discrimination averages about 90,000 yearly and is trending upward.
• The Human Resources Division works to enhance its operations through setting goals, identifying tactics, using a respected process-improvement methodology (Lean Six Sigma) and sharing best practices.
The grand jury found that:
• The Human Resources Division is well organized to carry out its complex and demanding recruiting and hiring functions.
• The county’s tightly structured recruiting/hiring/promoting process is intended to avoid the fact and appearance of bias and preclude legal actions based on charges of discrimination. The process sometimes results in by-passing well-qualified candidates.
• The Human Resources Division has applied continuous process-improvement methods to some steps of recruiting and hiring with impressive success.
The grand jury’s final report makes two main recommendations to the Board of Supervisors:
• Direct the Human Resources Division to review the current restrictive recruiting/hiring procedures with the aim of discovering other fair and legally tenable applicant-filtering techniques.
• Direct the Human Resources Division to expand its use of Lean Six Sigma methodology to analyze additional parts of the recruiting/hiring/promoting process.
