Human Resources Director Bonnie Woertz Highlighted in WorkOne Employer Spotlight
Since 1959, Blue River Services, Inc. has provided people of all backgrounds and levels of ability opportunities to grow and thrive at home, work, and in the community. Serving 32 Indiana counties, Blue River's extensive reach and rich history in the state continue to have a significant impact. In fiscal year 2016, Blue River Services, Inc. served more than 23,000 people through essential programs such as First Steps, Healthy Families, WIC, low-income and transitional housing, youth services, education, employment services, and much more.
Bonnie Woertz, Human Resources Director, has embraced the opportunity to gain extra help in order to benefit the community by utilizing WorkOne's Work Experience Program. This program allows young adults to gain experience in a career field of their interest for 6-8 weeks and is free of cost to the employer. This allows an employer to gain additional help while also mentoring a young adult in our community.
"Blue River Services is always looking for individuals who want to work in a caring environment of 'people serving people.' That is our motto and it truly sums up what we do. Whether a BRS employee works in a direct care position or an office position within the Human Resources Department, we all play an integral part in making someone's life better. This is an awesome responsibility with an equally awesome reward," states Bonnie.
Blue River Services has hosted interns in areas such as clerical, human resources, direct support professionals, and data entry. These are wonderful opportunities for our young adults to develop skills and explore opportunities that are in line with their career goals.
