Oswego County Opportunities, one of the top 10 largest private employers in Oswego County, has welcomed six new members to the agency’s staff.
The employees, who will join the OCO’s staff of human services professionals, recently completed the agency’s orientation process and will begin to serve consumers in their respective programs.

“We take pride in our workforce and the job that they do. To ensure that OCO employees provide our consumers with the outstanding service they deserve, we offer each new staff member every opportunity to become a productive employee and excel in their position,” said Christine Prevost, training coordinator. “Additionally, our culture is to encourage employees to continue their growth and to take advantage of the many training opportunities available to them.”

Our orientation session is a full day of training and information that will allow our new employees to build a successful career at OCO,” said Prevost.
