Monday, April 8, 2019 I serving the tri-state region
The Siouxland Chamber of Commerce and The Siouxland Initiative are partnering with Iowa Workforce Development and Iowa Economic Development Authority in updating our Laborshed employment study of the Siouxland area.

Iowa Workforce Development will begin their research by sending a letter to Siouxland businesses (human resource managers) requesting each business to complete an employee zip code reporting form. We encourage you to participate by completing the form. Random household phone surveys will also take place and will focus on items such as employment status, occupation, skills, education and training, and willingness to change employment or accept employment.

Your participation is very important and assists our region in economic development efforts. For more information click here.
