The Kentucky Workforce Investment Board (KWIB) met on May 15, 2018 and approved the Work Ready Community review panel’s recommendation to approve Fleming County’s Work Ready Extension request. This extension will be valid for three years, making the Work Ready Recertification date May 15, 2021.

A Kentucky Work Ready Community certification is a measure of a county’s workforce quality. It is an assurance to business and industry that the community is committed to providing the highly-skilled workforce required in today’s competitive global economy. Through this effort, Kentucky communities can assess their own workforce strengths and follow a process to become certified as Work Ready or Work Ready in Progress.
