Working together, developing quality employees for Finney County area businesses

OUR STORY

Finney County Workforce Connection was formed in April 2014 to create an aggressive community-wide campaign to recruit, enhance, and retain a sustainable workforce in the Finney County region.

To achieve this goal, we work together to identify, create, and utilize important partnerships and resources in the community and surrounding area.

OUR APPROACH
Through collaboration of local organizations, the workforce initiative is able to provide information, assistance, and action through numerous channels. This creates a unified effort on behalf of the community and provides our citizens, businesses, and future community members with the most efficient and effective services available in the area.
