DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Mountain States Employers Council (MSEC) announced it has shortened its name to Employers Council effective immediately. The new name reflects the organization’s expansion beyond the Rocky Mountain region and emphasizes the growing geographic scope of its services. MSEC was originally founded by Denver business leaders to address the challenges placed upon employers by the first national employment laws enacted during the Great Depression. Now the organization’s services reach far beyond the Front Range.
“While serving our members in Colorado, Arizona and Utah continues to be a key focus, our members operate and seek assistance in all 50 states. Adopting the name Employers Council better reflects our goal of meeting the needs of the business community beyond the mountain state region,” said Mike Severns, President and CEO. “We are positioned to continue delivering the highest-quality service to our member organizations as we continue to expand our footprint. This is our second name change in our 78-year history and just as we changed our name in 1945 to reflect our expanded geographic scope, we do so again.”
Founded in 1939 with 100 member companies, Employers Council now offers professional services to more than 4,500 employers in over 75 industries, representing nearly two million employees. Employers Council helps organizations in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors enhance workforce effectiveness by addressing their needs in employment law, human resources management, training, performance improvement, HR data and more.
In addition to a new name and logo, Employers Council launched a new website today that will provide more external visibility for potential members and enhanced resources for existing members. For more information and to view the newly launched website, visit: www.employerscouncil.org.
