Nearly 300 local workforce professionals attended the first MOmentum 2015: State of the Workforce Luncheon, hosted today by the local Workforce Investment Board and the Missouri Career Center-Ozark Region. In addition to discussing the survey findings, attendees listened to and participated in a panel discussion by some of the top industry and education leaders in the region.

“When I reviewed the MOmentum survey results and compared them to two national surveys, I was very pleased that our local survey reflects national trends and that the information validates our collective efforts to improve our community, it validates that the economy is taking a positive turn and hiring projections are expected to rise and it validates our collective concern over the skills and education gap,” said Mary Ann Rojas, director of the City of Springfield’s Workforce Development department, which includes the Career Center. “Locally, we have gained real momentum in working together and in recognizing that we have a common vision and shared purpose for economic vitality shaped by a well-trained and qualified workforce,” Rojas said.
