HENDERSON ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT LAUNCHES COMMUNITY JOB BOARD
Interactive Website Designed to Quickly Match Area Employers and Job Seekers

Henderson, KY —Henderson Economic Development today announced the launch of their interactive Community Job Board, www.hendersonkyjobs.com. The interactive tool, designed in partnership with long-time Henderson Economic Development (HED) partner, Insyteful, LLC, was custom-programmed to provide an easy-to-navigate tool for both area employers and job seekers.

The Community Job Board includes a number of features designed to make job search simple and intuitive for the job seeker, as well as allowing employers to post open positions quick and easy as well. Job seekers can search and filter the posts by job type, skill level, location, full-time/part-time, and more. Or they can click on the interactive map to see specific job posts close to them. Employers can quickly post jobs, organize them under a dozen job classifications, add job descriptions, applications, and direct contact to the company.

Greg Risch, Gibbs Die Casting President & CEO commented, “Gibbs and other businesses in the Henderson area have numerous job openings in the competitive workforce market today.  We see this job board as another way for individuals to be aware of careers and advancement opportunities in manufacturing.”

The discussions of this job board began at an HED workforce coalition meeting with area plant managers and HR professionals.  The purpose of this committee is to collect data, identify open positions and skills needed to fill those positions.  The group thought the job board answered this purpose and found it to be user friendly. 

Dr. Jason Warren, Henderson Community College President and Chair of the HED Workforce Coalition added, “One of the exciting features of this job board is that it can also automatically post new jobs on Henderson Economic Development facebook page (@hendersonkyedc), getting the word out to everyone in our area through social media.”  Dr. Warren continued, “The Job Board also allows our businesses and schools to post available internships, training programs, and apprenticeships, making this a full-service tool providing key information that grows our local workforce.  This tool will have the ability to attract individuals from other states to move here for great job and training opportunities.”

Whitney Risley, HED Director of Existing Industries and Workforce Development concluded, “HED’s top three initiatives in our five-year strategic plan involve existing industries, workforce development and attracting new companies.  This job board will assist in all three of these areas to help both employers and job seekers.  HED is committed to growing local opportunity and excitement around employment opportunities in Henderson.”
