Ed Wood, who serves on The Workforce Connection’s Board of Directors and is the Vice President of Human Resources for Berner Foods, has been a successful leader in the intentional effort of recruiting, hiring, and retaining re-entry talent.

The webinar hosted by the Illinois Workforce Innovation Board will feature a panel of employers, including Mr. Wood, to catalyze employer awareness and consideration of hiring the formerly incarcerated.

The Workforce Connection is grateful to have such an asset in Ed as part of our Board of Directors. Lisa M. Bly-Jones, Ed.D., Executive Director of The Workforce Connection, says, “Ed Wood is an engaged board member and regional employer who exemplifies what it means to develop and grow your own. His deep commitment to developing people is what stands out most, and his willingness to meet people where they are is key to working with diverse employees”.
