Q E S H
On December 30, Doyon, Limited will mail out a census questionnaire to all shareholders ages 15 to 60 to gather information that will be used as part of Doyon’s workforce development program. is information will ultimately enhance shareholder hire during the company’s rapid business growth. Shareholders 15 to 17 years old are being included because they will be entering the training and/or job market in the next few years. Shareholders over 55 are being included because their work history and experiences are important to this project, even though they may not want to work for Doyon.
Doyon, Limited President and CEO Norman Phillips, Jr. said, “I am proud to be a shareholder working for Doyon. Now more than ever it is the time for us, the shareholders of Doyon, Limited to take ownership of shareholder hire. It is a critical part of the Doyon workforce development effort. By working together, we can increase shareholder hire and enhance Doyon’s position as a strong Native corporation.”
He added, “Doyon could potentially see a dramatic increase in jobs in the next several years. is growth is substantial, and simply put; we will need more shareholders to fill these new positions.”
