Situation:
Sweet has been looking for solutions on how to attract and retain employees and grow its workforce pipeline, while remaining customer-focused and maintaining the company’s extraordinary reputation. Knowing this, an introduction to FastLane was made through the Greene County Career Center (GCCC). Sweet’s goal is to invest in young talent, encouraging workers to grow into great careers offered within the organization.

Solution: 
FastLane helped Sweet by providing valuable information on how the Ohio MEP High School Internship Program works. They offered advice on retention practices and made this important program easy to navigate with prompt responses to questions and excellent customer service.
