We connect job seekers with employers.

We are the Public Workforce System for Lancaster and Saunders Counties. We work with government, industry, and non-profit groups to build our communities, support our businesses, and create job opportunities. We empower Nebraskans with the skills and education they need to compete in a competitive global economy. The confidence and self-fulfillment that come with doing and earning creates dignity and upward mobility. We measure success by the achievement of our people, by the jobs they can find, and the quality of life those jobs offer.

All services are provided at no cost to job seekers and employers. The majority of funding is from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
