Curt Eysink was appointed executive director of the Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) by Governor Bobby Jindal in July 2009. He is focused on making Louisiana the best state in the country to get a job or grow a business. The LWC is working to achieve this goal by increasing workforce participation across the state and by building a first-class workforce delivery system that meets the needs of business and industry.
Under Eysink’s leadership, the LWC has become one of the top 10 states for people served by its Workforce Investment Act program; expanded its workforce development programs to include Louisiana Rehabilitation Services; re-engineered the unemployment insurance system into a re-employment program; made the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund one of the five strongest in the nation; and implemented workers’ compensation medical treatment guidelines.
Mr. Eysink previously served as director of marketing for Louisiana Health Care Review Inc., and as city editor of The Advocate newspaper in Baton Rouge. He holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.
