Inglewood Park Cemetery

Workforce History:

In 1905, a group of visionary Centinela Valley businessmen decided to pool their resources and form the Inglewood Park Cemetery Association. The first interment was made in the new cemetery on July 20, 1906. In the first year, there were 32 burials, which not surprisingly would increase dramatically over the coming years. Many of the original settlers of the Centinela Valley and the South Bay region are entombed there, as are nearly three dozen Civil War veterans.

Workforce Challenge:

In recent years, Inglewood Park Cemetery was experiencing the challenge of finding qualified candidates to fill its Community Service Sales Counselors positions. Inglewood Park reached out to the South Bay One-Stop Business & Career Center – Inglewood to find qualified candidates. The One Stop job developers recruited, screened and vetted candidates that met Inglewood Park Cemetery’s hiring requirements.

Outcomes & Benefits:

With the ongoing assistance of the OneStop staff, Inglewood Park Cemetery has hired over twelve full-time permanent positions. Inglewood Park Cemetery has been an active supporter of the South Bay Workforce Investment Board and serves on the board of directors.
