The WorkForce Center in Wadena has changed its name to CareerForce.

Throughout the state, Minnesota's WorkForce Centers are changing their name to CareerForce. Bringing all of Minnesota's workforce system partners under one brand seeks to enhance the services provided to career seekers, employers and communities.

"Our goal is to partner with career seekers and employers to deliver prosperous outcomes," said Daniel Wenner, Executive Director of Rural Minnesota CEP. "CareerForce is the result of extensive outreach with workforce system participants, employers, workforce staff and non-profit partners throughout the state who shared insights on how to improve service delivery and outcomes."

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), together with the Minnesota Association of Workforce Boards (MAWB) and the Governor's Workforce Development Board (GWDB), began a multi-month rollout of the CareerForce rebranding initiative in late 2018.

"Working better together will help prepare and connect more workers with careers that sustain families and strengthen communities," said Wenner. "And it will help Minnesota employers find the employees they need to grow their businesses and keep Minnesota's economy strong."
