A Word from The Director:

"The spirit of the new federal workforce legislation, The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, is alive and well in Mesa County, and we are years ahead of the curve. Mesa County is unique in that we foster innovation of program delivery to ensure that our customers have access to the best and most useful services in their journey. With this comes the important partnerships we share with our employer community as well as our education partners.

The Workforce Center services as support and conduit to employers who are looking to identify, recruit and train new talent, as well as offering state-of-the-art services for job fairs and employer training events. We work with our education community, the business community, and job seekers to ensure that local talent is being cultivated and matched up with our local employers."
