On November 13th ETP received the State Agency Recognition Award from Department of General Services for "Most Notable Improvement for Small Business Contracting." Additionally, ETP was named an "Agency of the Year Finalist" for furthering the "Best Practice" activities for Small Business and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises. ETP prioritizes small business training and is an essential resource for small employers who otherwise may have no means to train their workers. About three-fourths of all businesses served by ETP employ 250 or fewer workers; and roughly a quarter employ only 20 or fewer workers.
