Missouri Works for Growing Businesses
The Missouri Works Program provides significant benefits for new and existing companies that are creating jobs in Missouri. The Missouri Works program is a comprehensive strategy to support economic growth and create career opportunities for Missourians.
The program is offered to qualified industries that are increasing their workforce, meet a minimum wage threshold and offer health insurance to their employees. The incentives are based on the hiring of new full time employees. The program is responsive to the state’s high-growth industries, such as information technology and advanced manufacturing, while also opening the door for small businesses to access incentives when creating as few as two new jobs.
Missouri Works also offers a streamlined workforce training program that efficiently targets workforce development resources and funding. Through this program, businesses can access next-generation training for their workforce and get the competitive edge necessary in this global economy.
Since inception, Missouri Works has been highly successful in encouraging and facilitating investment and job creation in businesses of all sizes across the state. From helping huge multinational corporations like Cerner add 16,000 jobs in Kansas City to small firms like Midwest Metalcraft & Equipment Company grow their workforce in Windsor, Missouri Works has proven in just two years that it is an economic development asset to the state. Today, hundreds of companies from every corner of the state have used the program to leverage assets to hire key personnel or invest in new space and equipment, ultimately growing Missouri’s economy.
