The Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC) received an Award of Excellence this week from the California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED) for bringing diverse jobs to Santa Clarita, officials said.
The SCVEDC created LiveWorkSCV.com, a free resource that matches Santa Clarita job opportunities with local talent, after hearing feedback from local employers that it was difficult to find qualified, local candidates and hearing from residents that they were tired of their long commute times, according to the organization.
SCVEDC launched this comprehensive job board to address this issue.
LiveWorkSCV.com was lauded by numerous employers, and unanimously supported by SCVEDC’s 50-seat board of directors as a program congruous to their mission of growing a diverse and quality job base in the Santa Clarita Valley.
In its first six months of operation in 2019, 127 unique Santa Clarita Valley companies posted jobs, and there are many success stories of employers finding local workers, according to officials.
“We are thrilled to receive this award in recognition of LiveWorkSCV.com. This resource provides a valuable service to both local companies and residents,” said SCVEDC President and CEO Holly Schroeder. “The award offers validation that the work we are doing here in the Santa Clarita Valley in support of local businesses is being noticed and making an impact.”
Job postings are free to Santa Clarita employers, and all jobs are reviewed before publishing to assure they meet the Santa Clarita Valley locale criteria.
SCVEDC is set to be recognized at a formal award presentation at the CALED annual conference in Long Beach on March 26.
