Assist Employers seeking skilled workers, or interested in upgrading their workers’ skills, can tap into many valuable programs and services of the Great Bend Workforce Center


The Great Bend Workforce Center Employer Services Unit has the capability to respond to your employment and human resource questions. Staff members work with employers in order to assess workforce needs, and provide ongoing support to assist employers in the recruitment and retention of their workforces. If a staff member cannot immediately respond to an issue or concern, the issue is presented to the Employer Services Unit for a collaborative effort to produce a solution or offer a number of options to an Employer to choose from. We help you find answers or connect you with others who can provide assistance. The Employer Services Unit is made up of representatives from over 12 different organizations, representing various Workforce Programs involved in Education, Training Development, Recruitment and other financial incentive sources.
