Workforce Development

In the business world, finding and keeping talented people takes top precedent. The same can be said for the broader local economy, just on a larger scale. When it comes to attracting and expanding existing businesses, workforce matters. Without an active and continuous supply of talented labor, companies have a harder time succeeding. This is why local economic development organizations work hard to build the quantity and quality of their region's talent resources.

Aligning with Raymore's targeted industries, we have been working diligently at the local and regional level in identifying our assets, including those related to talent so as to build a vision for the future.
