Nearly a decade ago, the State of Kansas elected to consolidate a series of their Workforce Centers across the state. Atchison’s Workforce Center was part of that consolidation with those services having been offered by the Lawrence Workforce Center in the time since the consolidation.

KANSASWORKS is the brand and platform developed by the State of Kansas to provide workforce and employment services. Individuals seeking employment, as well as employers seeking workers, are encouraged to connect with KANSASWORKS to understand what services are available to assist them in their specific circumstances.
