Burlington Workforce Center

Meet Bomgaars

Workforce Challenge

Bomgaars was opening a new business in a community with an approximate unemployment rate of 2.1%. They needed to fill approximately 25 job openings in a community with a very low UI rate.

Workforce Solution

Burlington Workforce Center advertised job openings, preregistered, distributed/collected/forwarded applications, scheduled interviews, and provided interview space for the new Bomgaars store that was opening in Burlington. The majority of the interviews were scheduled on one day in March. However, we scheduled any additional interviews throughout the week until we got through all the interested applicants. Staff from the Limon Workforce Center assisted in executing the hiring event as both WFC offices are 1 person offices.

Outcomes & Benefits

Bomgaars hiring general manager, Steve, was very happy with the Workforce Center services they received. Steve continually thanked us for all the work we were doing. He stated that he was very happy with the applicant pool and turn out. At this time we are closing the job orders as he feels he has more than enough qualified applicants to fill the 25 job openings. Forty-four job seekers attended the Bomgaars Hiring Event.
