Flagger Force’s partnership with GED Testing Service is a testament to the company’s dedication to workforce development.

“As a company that values supporting and developing its’ people, this program aligns with our mission to cultivate a team of leaders and learners and provide growth opportunities to our entire workforce,” said Shea Zwerver, workforce development manager at Flagger Force. “By offering the GEDWorks™ program at no cost to employees, we are helping make education accessible to all of those interested,” added Zwerver.
The GEDWorks™ program is designed to meet the unique needs of working adults who aspire to earn their GED credentials. The program includes everything employees need to prepare for, and pass, the GED test. Participants are given access to a personal advisor, one-to-one tutoring, online GED study materials in English and Spanish, practice tests, and free GED tests. Personal advisors are a key component of the GEDWorks™ program. Advisors act as coaches and motivators and hold students accountable for earning their GED. GEDWorks™ participants are 40 percent more likely to earn their diplomas than students who study independently.

Obtaining a high school equivalency diploma is a critical stepping-stone for employees, and we are glad to be a part of helping members of Flagger Force’s team achieve their educational goals,” said Vicki Greene, president of GED Testing Service.
