New School a Recruiting Tool for Viking Range in Greenwood, MS
Viking Range Corp. has found that in recruiting employees to work for the company in Greenwood, a number of potential employees declined to take the job because of the lack of accelerated learning opportunities for their children in K-12.
"We have a public school system, of course, and a private school system," said Bill Crump, director of governmental affairs and executive assistant to the president, Viking Range Corp. "But those were not meeting the needs of some people. They were looking for something different. Several times we lost potential employees because of the school situation here. We were also losing existing employees to other areas where the educational opportunities are better."
