“The governor’s workforce development initiative is both timely and focused on the opportunities and challenges in today’s economy. The Missouri workforce team wants to know what roles businesses have to fill as well as develop an understanding of the job requirements and position-specific training requirements. They’re asking smart questions – not rushing in with answers to questions we haven’t asked, and not coming forward with solutions that we don’t need. I know Governor Greitens is dedicated to making this a “paradigm shift” that will benefit all of us.”—Karl Glassman, CEO of Leggett & Platt
“This is a tremendous program that allows small companies like Nova to retain associates, add and enhance skill sets, and be continuously growing both profitably and in adding new positions. We are thankful to be benefactors of this program.”—Jeanne Moses, Nova Marketing Services, LLC
“As a small business, it has truly been a help to utilize Missouri's training solutions - it has allowed us to keep up with new technology and resources, attain ISO certification and so many more benefits.” —Bill Lazechko-VP Operations, TelGaAs Inc.
“Our employees receive valuable training and education from Missouri that provides them with more skills to become successful with our company. I believe Missouri’s programs have exceeded our expectations for our training needs.”—Tammy Schmitt, CertainTeed Corporation
“The assistance allowed us to address training gaps that might otherwise not have been adequately identified and closed. This training improves the skills of our employees and helps to stabilize our workforce.”—James A. Wrigley, Lafargeholcim
