Demonstrating Family Spirit With a Texas Workforce Commission Grant

June 16, 2017 Chelle O'Keefe

As the Chief Human Resource Officer at Associa, my focus every day is to provide a positive employee experience to our over 10,000 employees across North America. On a more local level, we are doing several things in the North Texas area to ensure we are an employer of choice. We recently were named one of the “Best and Brightest” Companies to work for in the DFW area and more recently were awarded a significant grant from the Texas Workforce Commission to increase the education and professional development of all of our North Texas employees.


This grant ensures that we can provide a career path and professional development to the over 800 employees we serve specifically in the DFW area. We will partner with the exceptional staff at Richland College to deliver hundreds of training hours in the topics of Finance and Accounting, Customer Service and Communications, among others. These courses will run throughout the remainder of 2017 and into 2018 and are essential to our company goal of providing best in class training and development.


On a personal note, I am incredibly grateful for those employees who worked alongside Richland College and the Texas Workforce Commission to secure this grant. Their hard work will ensure hundreds of employees not only receive additional professional development but also improve their lives and the lives of their families. One of our main values at Associa is Family Spirit, and the work done on this grant in service to others is a great demonstration of how our employees come together to benefit one another and the community in which we work.
