Hardin County Employers & Human Resource Directors

We know that it is increasingly difficult to find quality employees to fill vacant positions. Are you competitive with pay, benefits and other
compensation? Where should you be looking? Are there candidates available in the area? What resources are available?

Iowa Falls Area Development, Iowa Falls Chamber/Main Street and Hardin County Economic Development invite you to a free Lunch and Learn to present the new laborshed study that was recently completed for Hardin County and to hear how the Home Base Iowa Program can put skilled talent in your hiring pipeline.

This and additional information is available to your business to use at no cost. Find out how to access it and use it.

Jason Kemp, Program Manager of Home Base Iowa will discuss potential talent in returning veterans who are transitioning to civilian life and looking for career employment opportunities.
