ACT® Certified Work Ready Community (CWRC) Initiative

May. 10, 2016

County leaders announced today that Geary County is pursuing certification in the ACT Work Ready Communities initiative. The County’s Core Team has completed the initial training phase and is joining the 105 counties throughout the United States in workforce certification in the ACT county level initiative.

Third party certification assures employers that the workforce in their area has the talent and skills necessary to support existing business expansions and enhances the competitive position of Geary County in attracting new businesses to the area. Twenty-two employers in Geary County have committed to supporting the initiative.

The ACT CWRC Geary County Core Team is committed to continuous improvement of the regions workforce quality and developing local systems to monitor, and implement curriculum modification and evaluate workforce support curriculum. “This is a true community effort; industry, USD 475, the community colleges, local government, and workforce programs have come together to focus on improving the workforce and achieving national Certified Work Ready Community status,” said Susan Jagerson Chair, Geary County Work Ready Community Core Team. “Geary County’s Work Ready Community certification will provide us with the opportunity to demonstrate that Geary County has a knowledgeable and trained workforce capable of serving current and future employers.”

Geary County joins four other Kansas counties in their quest to become WRC certified. After completing the training Academy, communities are given two years to reach the goals established by ACT to achieve the CWRC designation.
