Greenovation in Action - Brian Morse, owner of Morse Electric, said the Greenovation program has allowed the Muskogee-based company to provide a higher wage and compete against statewide companies and out-of-state companies. “Being a part of the Greenovation program has been a great way to find people to bring to the company and help us expand,” Morse says.
For Oklahomans looking for quality employment, the OJT opportunities offered help Oklahomans enter the construction, energy efficiency services and related sectors beyond the unskilled, entry level stages of their careers.
As a participant, Oklahoma Greenovation gives you the opportunity to gain a position that you may not have otherwise been eligible for due to lack of experience or training. OJTs allow you to gain that needed experience while working and getting paid!
