HR/Shareholder Outreach Update: Union Outreach Event
In August, Doyon, Limited human resources and shareholder outreach held a Union Outreach Event at the Fairbanks Pipeline Training Center Trust, in conjunction with local union hall representatives.
The event, which drew 63 attendees, provided shareholders an opportunity to learn more about the various unions and employment opportunities within those unions. Attendees were also able to apply for any open apprenticeship programs. Doyon shareholder outreach staff was also available to answer questions regarding test preparation, job applications and interviewing. Although the event targeted Doyon shareholders, all were welcome to visit the booths to learn more about what the unions in Fairbanks have to offer.
Participating unions at the event included:
- International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1547
- International Union of Operating Engineers Local 302
- Laborers Union Local 942
- Carpenters Local Union 1243
- Teamsters Local 959
- United Association Local 375 Plumbers & Pipefitters
The event also featured door prize drawings for shareholders and a barbecue lunch catered by Doyon Facilities. Several of the unions also offered hands-on demonstrations including scaffolding, operating an excavator and others.
In preparation for the event, organizers emailed all shareholders in the Doyon talent bank, as well as former Doyon Family of Companies shareholder employees. Event announcements were posted to Doyon’s social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and to the Doyon website. Flyers were emailed to local organizations and posted in various locations around the Fairbanks area, including the union halls, Adult Learning Center, Chief Andrew Isaac Health Center, Tanana Chiefs Conference locations and Doyon offices.
Shareholder outreach continues to provide training opportunities and job application assistance for shareholders on a day-to-day basis.
