Last week Tom White, CEO of Phynd Technologies, Inc., attended a White House Roundtable on how business leaders and entrepreneurs are increasingly turning to rural America to site quality, good-paying technology jobs that present growth opportunities for rural workers, businesses, and the nation’s economy overall. The roundtable was held in the Roosevelt Room at the White House and was hosted by Secretary of Labor Tom Perez and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack with ten business leaders in attendance. The event provided a venue for the employers and two Cabinet members to discuss opportunities on how to accelerate this trend and identify key actions that the Administration and private sector can take to accelerate ongoing progress.
“It was an honor to participate in this intimate event, and observe the level of passion from Secretaries Vilsack and Perez for finding solutions to the quickly changing labor markets in rural areas. We are proud of our work at Phynd in hiring, training and promoting IT job creation in Central Nebraska; this also gives us a truly competitive business advantage,” White commented.
