   SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., Sept. 17, 2012 (SEND2PRESS
   NEWSWIRE) -- The San Bernardino County Workforce Investment
   Board's Process Improvement Program, with Deisell Consultants, LLC,
   has saved 1,709 jobs and allowed local employers to potentially create
   215 new jobs.

   Jeff Rogina, warehouse manager of VIP Solutions, a subsidiary of
   Vocational Improvement Program, Inc., lead the process of updating
   the company's software and inventory systems. It was an important
   component of their growth and ability to serve and provide jobs.

   "I was in the process right when I received the notice from the San
   Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board of its process
   improvement program through Deisell Consultants, LLC," Jeff said. "It
   was the perfect solution at the perfect time."

   Vocational Improvement Program, Inc. is a private non-profit organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities by
   providing them with meaningful work opportunities to achieve personal growth and independence. VIP Solutions is a
   fulfillment, transportation and logistics and storage company.

   Jeff worked with Deisell Martinez, a certified lean Six Sigma black belt, to review the company's existing spreadsheets and
   inventory systems to create a streamlined and efficient process.

   "Our clients include Kmart, Sears and Ace Hardware," Rogina said. "When we can improve all facets of our services, we
   increase our customer retention and become an attractive solution to new clients."

   After the six-month project, VIP Solutions landed a project with Kmart and are looking forward to expanding into a new facility.

   "When we grow, we can create new jobs for disabled adults," Rogina said. "The results from the process improvement
   program through the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board will benefit us for years to come."

   For the past two years, Martinez worked successfully with 50 employers located throughout San Bernardino County. She has
   seen a marked shift in optimism among businesses."Businesses are productive and positive about their long-term prospects,"
   she said. "Instead of worrying about survival, they're now looking at ways to stabilize their growth and remain lean and
   efficient."

   Earlier this year, Sandy Harmsen, executive director of the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board testified
   before Congress about the effectiveness of the Process Improvement Program.

   "Our County Workforce Investment Board is a national model recognized for supporting employers while simultaneously

   helping workers keep their jobs and giving new opportunities to job seekers," said Chair Josie Gonzales, County of San
   Bernardino Fifth District Supervisor. "These programs are vital to our region's economic recovery."

   "We are very excited about the results from Deisell Consultants, LLC," said Harmsen. "These numbers represent employees
   who were not only to keep their jobs, but also take a stronger role in their company's future. Also, when employers can offer
   positions to people who have been out of work, it gives hope and opportunity to everyone."
