JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Those working to further improve Mississippi’s numbers on future economy scorecards will tell you that workforce development is key.
“There’s never been a stronger focus on creating the type of workforce that’s ready for today and the jobs of the future than now,” said Mississippi Economic Council President and CEO Scott Waller.
The Mississippi Economic Council hopes to see more schools and communities looking to the programs like ACT WorkKeys. While the ACT gauges college readiness, WorkKeys gauges career readiness.
