We’re here to help!

Need help finding workers? Check out our downloadable workforce solutions guide on this page. It offers a wide range of ideas on finding workers, keeping workers and training them, too! (Did you know our local community college can help with that training?)

Our workforce solutions work plan is also available for download. It’s a quick look at all of our area resources to help with workforce. If you need more details, be sure to reach out to our very own Workforce Specialist, Laura Seyfer.

ICR IOWA Talent Hub

We can also connect you to our regional resources at ICRIowa, which includes our exclusive Talent Hub. Talent Hub talks directly to prospective employees about all we have to offer here and helps match them with employers. (If you’re a job seeker, this is also for YOU!)
