$55,000 will train 35 workers and add new jobs by 2020

On Monday, the Baker-Polito Administration announced the recipients of the Workforce Training Fund Program. The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod is the recipient of over $55,000 to train 35 workers and add new jobs by 2020.

“As a local, community bank, it’s so important for us to invest back into the communities where we live and work,” said Lisa Oliver, President and CEO of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. “An important part of that reinvestment is in our employees by supporting and encouraging growth through training, team-building and ongoing professional develop-ment.”

The mission of the Grant is to promote job growth, job retention, and increased oppor-tunity for workers by increasing business productivity, competitiveness, and the ability to do business in Massachusetts.

“We’ve already invested in new training across the bank,” said Pat Walsh, Assistant Vice President and Training and Development Manager. “This grant will assist in the develop-ment of a robust and dynamic corporate training program, provide opportunities for pro-fessional development and strengthen our team here at The Coop.”

This project is funded by a Workforce Training Fund grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development. The grant pro-gram is administered by Commonwealth Corporation.
