Performance-ready, right now. 

A recent study showed Henderson’s GDP outperformed peer regions, increasing by 32% since 2011; this is a city that works hard. And in the nation’s largest county to be ACT® Work Ready-Certified, Henderson can also lay claim to superior skill, even as broader workforce experience lays the foundation for higher quality and innovation across sectors including healthcare, technology, business services and manufacturing. Every day Henderson readiness is also augmented by an influx of new residents equipped with professional, management and technical skills. Not only are we ready today, we’re also preparing for tomorrow, thanks to dynamic and expanding training opportunities like College of Southern Nevada’s new Advanced Manufacturing Rapid Response program assuring the on-going skills agility to respond quickly to ever-changing market demands.

Precise placement. Empowering attitudes.

Henderson also makes it easy to recruit the right team with the one-stop delivery services of Southern Nevada’s Workforce Connections operating in conjunction with ACT job profilers who work onsite with your enterprise to precisely evaluate your workforce needs. Using the nationally recognized WorkKeys assessments and the National Career Readiness certificate, job profilers recruit, pre-screen, hire and even train candidates. Your company hires the right people the first time, at no cost to you for recruitment or screening.

And once your team is on the job, in this right-to-work state you’ll discover the ready-and-willing attitude that has impressed other satisfied employers—whether the employer is Amazon seeking and finding the team that can deliver the company’s famously uncompromising customer-centric service; Google discovering a self-starting spirit of innovation; or Henderson Hospital recruiting with ease in a community that attracts the best.

Deeper engagement across your organization.

The level of workforce engagement is what impresses Mark Rauenzahn, Plant Manager at the Henderson Ocean Spray conversion facility, which ships 10 million cases of juice annually. The willingness and ability to give and receive feedback are quality drivers across all levels of the plant, from management and salaried staff to hourly manufacturing workers.

“This area is a melting pot. You have a variety of folks from all over the country who are very willing to come in and learn and do the right work. The theme that I see here is people come here to establish themselves, but they also come here with the willingness to start a new life, start a new career. And that lends itself to opportunity.”
