Helping Employers and Employees

By Jimi Coplen, DCOH Executive Director

One of the many hats we wear at the Development Corporation of Haskell (DCOH) is helping our employers find good, qualified employees.

Many times employers will let us know they are looking, but will not advertise it publically. Often times we meet a person with a specific skill set and are able to pair him or her with the right employer.  We help both employers and employees find a good match so please let us know if you are a job seeker or a company looking for employees.

Right now, LaSalle Corrections is seeking employees to reopen the Rolling Plains Detention Center.  If you are looking for employment with good wages and insurance, applications can be picked up at the DCOH office. A background check will have to be passed to obtain employment. The office is located on the east side of the square, 24 Ave D.

We are blessed to have a new company/business coming to town, but we also don’t want to see our current employers lose employees.  If you are currently employed at a local business, please don’t leave that job without weighing all your options. Please talk with your employer before jumping ship. The grass is not always greener on the other side and your boss would appreciate that conversation.

If you are moving to the community for employment, we can also help you navigate the lay of the land. We can put you in contact with our utility companies, real estate companies, get you school information and much more.  The Chamber of Commerce is also located next door to the DCOH so between the two of us, we are sure to be a great resource for newcomers. Also, be sure and visit www.haskelltexasusa.com/edc for additional resources. The DCOH office number is 940-864-3424 and we look forward to seeing how we can help you.
