SPRINGFIELD (AP) — The Illinois Department of Employment Security will send emails to 800,000 business leaders and workers to highlight state services.

Agency Director Jay Rowell said Wednesday the emails will offer help to companies in hiring, setting wages and building business plans. He says the effort will help get people back to work.

The blast emails will go to business leaders and others who have shared addresses with the agency.

The emails will not seek personal or banking information nor have a reply function. They will include links to the Employment Security Department's information online.

An example of email subject matter would be the online job-link service that features 120,000 help-wanted ads and attempts to find employees to fill those slots.
