Workforce Improvement Efforts Continue

Laramie, WY – Casper is the latest site for a follow-up meeting on how the state can improve its workforce.

The meeting will be the 5th follow-up since the Governor's summit on workforce issues discussed a variety of possible solutions to the problems employers are having in finding workers.

Jeremiah Rieman from the Department of Workforce Services says while some regions have specific issues they want to focus on, most are centering on one thing: housing.

Rieman says he's been impressed with the diligence many of the regions have shown in finding a solution. The Casper meeting is scheduled for Tuesday.
