Workforce

The Department of Commerce is responsible for administration of labor exchange, labor recruitment, general assessment, testing, and screening services for employers and job seekers. The Local Workforce Development Board establishes policy, eligibility guidelines, and provides the designated administrative entity with any guidance needed to ensure successful Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) training program administration within the region.

Commerce, the local board and/or its designated agents, and other partners work collaboratively within a one-stop environment to deliver these services to employers and jobseekers.

Commerce administers the KANSASWORKS workforce system, which links businesses, job seekers, educational institutions and training providers to ensure the state’s workforce is equipped to meet industry needs.

Other incentives and training programs provided by Commerce include Kansas Industrial Training (KIT) and Kansas Industrial Retraining (KIR).
