As a way to strengthen ties and support the Polk County community, the Missouri Job Center, Ozark Region, is hosting a Rural Outreach Initiative Town Hall on Wednesday,
August 22, 5:30-7:00 pm, at the Best Western Plus, 777 E. San Martin Street, Bolivar.
“The purpose of this town hall is to identify any challenges the county may be facing, as well as address needs in the local workforce,” said Mary Ann Rojas, Director of the Missouri Job Center. We’ll be gleaning information from a panel discussion made up of 3-5 local employers, said Rojas.
Representatives from local employers such as Citizens Memorial Hospital, Woods Supermarket and others, as well as Presiding Commissioner Shannon Hancock, will be on hand to discuss current trends in employment and what resources are needed to develop or retain workers.
“The Missouri Job Center is focused on continually addressing workforce needs in the community by partnering with local companies to ensure workers are adequately trained,” said Polk County resident Sharon Walker, who serves as the Job Center’s Workforce Development Board President.
The public is invited to attend this free event. For more information, contact Katherine Trombetta, communications coordinator, at 417-841-3389 or [email protected].
