We were chosen as finalists for the Workforce Development Small Business of the Year category. This category recognizes small businesses with outstanding practices in hiring retaining and developing the skills of their workers. We are proud to be chosen for this category because our employees are very important to us.
Businesses were judged based on merit in their category, innovative business model, workforce development efforts, customer service approach and community involvement. The event was hosted by Patranya Bhoolsuwan of the Kiro 7 news team and many elected officials from cities throughout King County were in attendance. Entertainment for the event included a performance from members of Blue Thunder, the Seattle Seahawks' band!
