Dickinson County has a large pool of skilled workers who are loyal, dedicated and know how to get the job done. Still, technology is creating constant change, requiring businesses to be nimble and make adjustments on a near constant basis. This makes access to workforce training programs critical to a company’s success. In Dickinson County, we are committed to helping our local employers by providing access to workforce resources and by leveraging partnerships with Kansas State University, Kansas Works, the Department of Commerce, etc. In addition, Dickinson County is within two hours of three major research universities, creating opportunities for attracting talent and partnering with universities on research or key initiatives.
