Woodland Pulp Corporation puts people to work

Woodland Pulp Company has found that there are lasting benefits for local contracts, particularly to maintain stable labor. However, due to the rural character, it was difficult to hire, train and maintain non-native employees. The surroundings of a small town can be a great cultural shock to immigrants who are moving. It is inadequate to invest two or four years in personal development, just to see them. The workforce at Woodland Pulp also needs some general skills which are often overlooked, from cooperation and clear communication to the right appearance of the workplace. The Maine NMTC Program helped to make additional funding possible for these efforts.
