THE AGENCY WITH A HEART
WELCOME FORMER McKESSON EMPLOYEES
A committee of your peers selected MNTSB to provide Dislocated Worker Program services to you to help you through the layoff and job search transition. This is a free program of benefits provided by the State of Minnesota to help workers impacted by layoff get back to work - quickly.
Job loss can be a difficult time, our goal is to help you through it with knowledge, respect, and kindness. Almost all of us here at MNTSB have experienced a layoff. We bring real-world understanding and help to you during this transition. Our approach works: we have a strong record of exceeding the state's performance goals of getting a job, keeping that job, and earning high wages. In fact, our participants are earning almost $20,000/year over the State's standard on the wage measure of the current Minnesota Department of Employment & Economic Development's Program outcomes report.
We have a close relationship with Teamsters Joint Council #32 serving members throughout Minnesota. We have provided services to employees in the areas of transportation and logistics since the state Dislocated Worker program was begun, and have served numerous employees of companies who handle medical equipment and supplies.
Everyone here at MNTSB is dedicated to supporting you in achieving your career goals. Our most important partner is YOU! We look forward to working with you.
Call us at (612) 676-3700 to learn more, or to sign up for our next REGISTRATION SESSION.
