Patty Irving, Congratulations for Receiving the Workforce Professional Champion Award!

pattyirvingDuring this year’s Workforce Development Summit, Patty Irving was awarded the Workforce Professional Champion Award for Region 14. This award honors individuals on the frontline within the workforce system who demonstrate traits and characteristics worthy of emulation. Recipients of this award serve as teachers, role models and confidants to their peers.

As a key member of the Pinellas WIOA team, Patty helps to drive the regional performance with Pinellas holding or tied for the #1 in 9 out of the 11 WIOA MMR performance standards.

Patty takes the time to know her customers so she can assist them in selecting the best possible training program. She has become familiar with several of the academic assessment tools and reviews the results with customers so they can be successful and employed in the field they are seeking. Over the last 15 years Patty has been a top performer for the WIOA program and each year has the highest number of training enrollments and positive outcomes.  Multiple customer compliments or “thank you’s” are received annually with Patty’s customers themselves applauding her customer service.

A quick review of Patty’s WIOA stats for the program year thru May 2016 shows why she is a top performer for the CareerSource Pinellas WIOA team.  Patty has recruited and enrolled over 200 WIOA participants during PY2015-16.  With over 260 WIOA participants during the same period, she has helped each participant meet their education goals, re-employ and exit the WIOA program positively.  Her training completion rate is close to 90% and Patty does all this while maintaining an active caseload of over 200 WIOA participants.  She is an integral part of the Pinellas WIOA team that helped to enroll close to 2000 new customers and close out over 1800 customers during the year.

Congratulations Patty, thank you for all of your hard work!
