Henderson Recognized as Work Ready Community

kwib worksmartHENDERSON, KY (5/23/12) – Henderson County has been certified by the Kentucky Workforce Investment Board as a Kentucky Work Ready Community.
 
This designation is an indication of the community's achievement in preparing the workforce for the jobs of today and its commitment to providing a pipeline of skilled workers for the jobs of the future. By meeting and exceeding the established criteria for high school graduation rates, National Career Readiness Certificate holders, education attainment, community commitment, soft skills development and internet availability, Henderson County now enjoys a competitive advantage with employers, site selection consultants and economic developers.
 
Employers in the region can be assured that workers in Henderson County are among the best Kentucky has to offer, providing a competitive edge in the global economy. Henderson County can now prove to site selectors and economic developers that it has the skilled workforce they seek. Residents can take pride in the fact that they live in a community that values the education, training and skills development which directly impacts their quality of life and sustainability for future generations.
 
Other Northwest Kentucky Forward counties are applying for the Work Ready Community Certification. Union County will submit an application at the end of June. McLean County will submit its application at the end of September, and Webster County will host Tom West, Executive Director of Kentucky Workforce Investment Board and Beth Brinly, Commissioner of Kentucky Department of Workforce Investment in June to start its application process.
