This past Easter, while gathered with family for brunch, I had a great conversation with my brother and he wasn’t even there. He was in Indianapolis, Indiana and I was in Springfield, Va. Our face-to-face conversation was made possible by an iPad running FaceTime. While a telephone conversation would have been fine, it was more meaningful to see him on the screen smiling and reacting to what I was saying.

Gov. Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis have awarded $20,000 to Electrolux Major Appliances N.A. in Springfield, through the state's Incumbent Worker Training Program, said a news release.

In the application for the grant, Electrolux said the funding would increase company value by contributing to the organization's competitiveness and productivity.

Clarksville-based Workforce Essentials, Inc., played a key role in awarding the grant to Electrolux.
