Our podcast provides information in a simple question and answer format. We choose topics and develop questions based on what we hear from the community. Our host then interviews subject matter experts so that we can provide employers and job seekers with important information.The podcast is one small way the Council can enhance the productivity and profitability of businesses in our area.”
The South Central Workforce Council is composed of a volunteer Board of Directors of business professionals and individuals that represent public and government organizations in the four county region of south central Washington (Kittitas, Klickitat, Skamania and Yakima Counties). The Council connects partners and stakeholders in a single network as a way to make efficient use of public dollars and to increase worker readiness for existing and new businesses.
