Cowley County, Kansas (KSNW) – Some small communities in Kansas have said they have trouble finding people to fill vacancies.
Cowley County has more than 150 jobs, and employers just say they aren’t interested enough. Kelly Faretti, Director of Economics and Community in Cowley County, said:
According to Faretti, companies around the world are increasing the list of jobs available. “It comes from all sectors of healthcare education manufacturing and retail food services, and there is only demand in all sectors,” he said.
“This is from all sectors of healthcare education manufacturing and retail food services, and there is only demand in all sectors,” Faretti said. “Currently, we have 50 openings,” said Sean Hull, site leader for Silgan Dispensing.
Cowley County business leaders said they only get one or two applications a week and are beginning to impact production.
“Currently, we have more than 120 vacancies,” said Alex Munoz, Human Resources at Creekstone Farms. “I think the pandemic has forced people to make family choices and work for fear of being infected with COVID,” he said.
Silgan Dispensing said he is working to create more flexible time for employees who want to adapt to a changing workforce.
“It’s not always available in manufacturing, but it’s generally seen as a trend for the younger generation,” says Hull.
