Alliant Insurance Services Inc. plans to add 50 to 100 employees at its Spokane offices within the next two years due to several acquisitions. The company has already more than doubled its Spokane-area workforce to over 160 since their acquisition of the brokerage firm of Moloney+O'Neill four years ago. Alliant has leased 5,000-square-feet in a multitenant building on the West Plains, but depending on how many new employees will join Alliant, the company might end up leasing up to twice as much space.

Spokane Workforce Council announces new Apprenticeship Development Specialist

The Spokane Workforce Council has recently hired Derelyn Howard as the new Apprenticeship Development Specialist serving the Spokane area. Derelyn brings expertise and a passion for the apprenticeship model with years of experience recruiting for manufacturing, pre-apprentice and apprenticeship programming at Technical Employment Training, Inc; the San Francisco Conservation Corps; and WorkSource Spokane. Creating and developing new registered apprenticeship opportunities will be her main focus with the goal of supporting local businesses which struggle to compete for new employees.

Registered apprenticeships allow businesses to train and develop their own employees in-house, coupled with classroom instruction from an authorized training provider to ensure state-of-the-art industry skill standards are met. Registered apprenticeships can be an integral part of the solution to recruit, train, and retain a skilled workforce. If your business is interested in registered apprenticeship or would like to discuss options, contact Derelyn Howard at 509-960-6269 or dhoward@wdcspokane.com.
