Workforce employment website launches to connect Kansas job seekers, employers

A new website has been introduced to Kansans, offering unemployed residents a way to connect with potential employers across the state. Dubbed KansasWorks, the site hones in on online workforce development in the era of COVID and is part of a new approach to economic development.

Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly announced on Monday the launch of a newly redesigned website,

The website is designed and open to residents to provide a more user-friendly experience for the Kansas job seekers and employers.

Featured on the website is an updated user interface making it easier for employers and job seekers to find the services they need, according to a news release from the governor’s office.

“The new is a much improved, easier-to-use service to help Kansans seeking a job connect with employers across the state,” Kelly said. “With the help of our partners, we have created a modern, effective tool to address the needs of our state’s workforce and our business community to spur our economic recovery statewide.”

The state said the new and improved job-seeking website includes tools and resources to assist people seeking employment and to help employers and training providers.

“Our state’s approach to economic development is evolving into the future and beyond, and online workforce development is no exception,” Lieutenant Governor and Commerce Secretary David Toland said. “The new website will provide a more responsive, easier to navigate and more functional environment for employers and job seekers online.”
