As of Friday, July 1st, the Wyoming Departments of Workforce Services and Employment have officially become the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services. The reorganization is the result of legislation passed during the 2011 Session. Director of the newly formed agency, Joan Evans, sees this as a way to more effectively navigate workforce related issues for the state.
The Department of Workforce Services is holding a series public input sessions around the state to garner feedback on how the agency can better assist citizens. We'll have more details soon on the meeting in Sheridan that is scheduled for later this month.
