The Business Resource Network (BRN), a partnership of local government and non-profit organizations that provides a range of service for businesses, recently was named a "promising practice" by the Governor's Office of Workforce Transformation.

The BRN was created in 2008 by local chambers of commerce, OhioMeansJobs Centers, economic development organizations, universities, colleges, career and technical centers, community organizations and state and local government agencies in Stark and Tuscarawas counties.

It was developed on the concept of providing one-stop access to a full range of business services and solutions through its 44 member agencies.  Such services can include financial incentives, employee training, business consultation, export help and technical assistance, often at no cost to the company.

In 2012, the BRN received a U.S. Department of Labor Workforce Innovation Fund grant of $6 million to expand into 13 additional counties.

Since then, local BRN account executives in Stark and Tuscarawas counties have conducted 161 company interviews and delivered 119 service proposals.  During that period leveraged resources totaled $230,589.

For further information on how the BRN can assist your business contact Kelly Haer at 330-491-2649.
