“We find in our region companies do a great job in investing in their workers to bring them up to the next level. A lot of these workforce programs that are administered by the Louisiana Workforce Commission do help companies accomplish that by offsetting, the initial investments that companies have to train those workers and bring them up,” says LEDA Workforce Development Manager, Ryan Legrange.
