Local Workforce Development Council Report To Be Unveiled

Tuesday, January 31, 2017

The Pierre / Fort Pierre Workforce Development Council unveil their final report at tonight’s Pierre City Commission meeting.

The Council has been meeting since August 2015 to research and identify strategies to address the local workforce shortage. Final strategies are specific to three areas –recruitment and retention, education and training, and housing.

Pierre Mayor Laurie Gill says that “This group of mostly volunteers has been working for more than a year to determine the best ways to positively affect our workforce shortage. The committees have considered many different tactics, and tomorrow we will learn which ones they believe are the best solutions for the Pierre / Fort Pierre area.”

Gill, in partnership with Fort Pierre Mayor Gloria Hanson, established the local workforce development council last year. It includes a cross-sector of about 30 government, quasi-government, and private industry stakeholders tasked with recommending solutions to our local workforce shortage. 

The city commission will meet tonight at 530pm in city hall and the meeting is open to the public.
