Posted October 11, 2007

P O W E L L, W y o. - The Worland Women's Business Roundtable gets rolling this fall with a Tuesday, Oct. 23, presentation on creating employee benefit packages to retain employees. Seats need to be reserved by Monday, Oct. 22.

The one-hour presentation by Tom Fitzsimmons, operating manager of the Iron Creek Energy Group, begins at noon in the Conference Building at the Washakie County Fairgrounds. Fifteen-minute networking sessions are scheduled both before and after the program.

Fitzsimmons won the Innovation in the Workplace award at the Governor's 2007 Summit on Workforce Solutions. He founded CBM International Engineering, based out of Cody, and over the past two years has recruited and managed a staff of engineers with over 90 years of conventional and unconventional oil and gas experience. Fitzsimmons also serves as executive vice president and chief operating officer of Nielson and Associates.

His dedication and commitment to investing in the development and well-being of his employees has translated into a low turnover rate. He'll share the tips he's learned about creating flexible, people-friendly, family-friendly benefit packages that also aide in recruiting high quality employees.

This Women's Roundtable program is sponsored by Big West Autoplex, the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Northwest College Worland Center for Training and Development. The roundtable series is geared for women, but men are welcome to attend.
