SPRINGFIELD, MO – The Ozark Region Workforce Development Board and the Missouri Job Center are proud to announce that the Fourth Annual Momentum State of the Workforce Survey is currently underway and organizations from around the region are welcome to participate. The survey allows the Department of Workforce Development to identify issues, challenges, and trends facing the workforce across the Ozark Region.
On January 4, Mary Ann Rojas, Director of Workforce Development, spoke to members of the community at the Springfield Chamber of Commerce’s monthly networking event, Good Morning, Springfield and encouraged their respective organizations to participate in the Momentum survey.
