LIVINGSTON COUNTY – The Livingston County Office of Workforce Development will be teaming up with Sutherland Global, a worldwide business process and technology management service provider, to host a recruiting initiative to offset the laying off of 172 employees from the Coast Professional office in Geneseo, which was announced earlier this month.
According to Ryan Snyder, Director of the Office of Workforce Development, the Department has been working with Sutherland Global to try and provide employment opportunities for the workers potentially being displaced at Coast Professional.
“Sutherland Global will be here from 9a.m. to 3p.m. and interview applicants for a variety of opportunities within the company,” said Snyder. “They are bringing a team of interviewers and hoping to make a strong connection in the community.”
Sutherland Global will be at the Livingston County Government Center, 6 Court Street in Geneseo, on Thursday April 9 from 9a.m. to 3p.m.
Coast Professional will be laying off 172 employees at their Geneseo office, citing the withdrawal of a contract by the U.S. Department of Education as a serious blow to their ability to maintain staff.
Before the termination of the Department of Education contract, Coast Professional announced that it was exceeding development goals and planned to build a 15,000 square foot expansion to their facility.
Coast is suing the Department of Education, saying that they have not given any reason to withdraw the deal. The Department of Education will be in court April 8.
