Growing Nebraska from Within
Defining the problem and traveling
uncharted territory to find a solution.
The number one problem currently facing Nebraska business leaders is a shortage of workers. Aksarben’s Workforce Development Initiative will fund workforce development programs at Nebraska community colleges with a goal of significantly increasing the output of students graduating with degrees and certificates in specific career fields needed in the region.
Heartland businesses are experiencing a shortage of skilled workers capable of filling job openings.
Aksarben’s next step is to recruit leadership across the state. First, focusing on the central part of Nebraska including Grand Island, Norfolk and the northeast.
