Kansas Workforce Center Information
The state of Kansas is divided into 5 workforce areas. The counties of Wabaunsee, Shawnee, Osage and Pottawatomie are located in Workforce Area II (or Heartland Works). Lyon County, however, is located in Workforce Area V (or Southeast KansasWORKS) as you can see in the map below. Each workforce area has workforce centers (identified on the map with stars and the names of the cities).
These workforce centers are vital to the Kansas economy and are funded by the Department of Labor, Department of Commerce and other state and federal agencies. Their sole purpose is to help prepare, connect, and assist Kansans to find suitable and gainful employment.
