Earlier this year, Dr. Jeff McCord was named Commissioner of the State of Tennessee Labor & Workforce Development Department. Hand-picked by Tennessee Governor Bill Lee, Dr. McCord oversees divisions and programs that provide a vast array of services that support jobs and workforce development.
Last week, Commissioner McCord visited DMTN Plants 203 and 204 to talk about workforce development, tour the facilities and talk with associates. The first member of Governor Lee’s staff to visit DMTN, Commissioner McCord said he was very impressed with the DENSO facilities and associates. During remarks to plant and Maryville Community leadership, he pledged to continue workforce development programs during his term.
Ongoing workforce development is critical to help DENSO meet its Long-term Policy 2030 – without talented associates, we cannot achieve our goals – and it supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. The SDGs are a global, shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
Thank you to those who made this high-profile visit possible: Mr. Nakamizo, Chuntao Ye, Jack Helmboldt, Britt Autry, Charlie Chujo, Mike Peevy, David Byrum, Kay Morrison, and the DMTN S&H/Communications/Community Relations/GA/HR/NAITS teams.
