Morgan County’s only WorkOne office has been closed and re-opened in Plainfield at 160 Plainfield Village Dr. The office is less than eight miles from its former location at 490 St. Clair St. in Mooresville.
The office replaces the former site and has additional space to accommodate more clients and employers.
The new Plainfield site will also host evening classes for residents working toward their General Education Development requirement and training on the computer lab.
Joe Frank, spokesman for the Indiana Workforce Development and its WorkOne centers, said the new location is more centrally located to a large and growing population group.
In a press release on the move, Frank said Plainfield and the surrounding area has grown by more than 120 percent over the past 10 years.
Mooresville residents can get to the new location by taking Ind. 267 to U.S. 40 and turning right (east). The office is across from Westgate Chrysler and on the north side of U.S. 40 near Kohl’s Department Store. An open house is planned, but hasn’t been announced yet.
Frank said there are no plans right now for opening a branch of WorkOne in Morgan County, “but we are always looking to broaden our opportunities in every community to pair job-seekers with local employers. This holds true for every region of the state.”
The Martinsville office of WorkOne was closed in March 2007. The WorkOne website states that Morgan County residents can seek services at any location in Indiana. There are offices in Bloomington, Franklin, Marion County and Franklin.
Frank said WorkOne is involved with thousands of employers all over Indiana. Careers included in the mix are manufacturing, construction, distribution and customer service — just to name a few.
Frank said hours for the new office will remain the same as when it was in Mooresville: Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. He said all the WorkOne staff members in Mooresville will continue their duties at the Plainfield site.
