The Boonlick Region is Work Ready!
Lincoln, Montgomery, and Warren counties have each been designated by the Missouri Department of Economic Development as a Certified Work Ready Community. The designation is the result of a unified effort by workforce development professionals—along with business, education, local government, and community leaders—to meet the economic development needs of the counties.
The foundation of the certification is based on individuals at the county level earning an ACT National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) and employers recognizing this credential. The NCRC is earned through scoring at certain competency levels on the WorkKeys Assessment which measures skills critical to on-the-job success across industries and occupations.
