Workforce Readiness

The Workforce Readiness Committee is a vital resource for NNHRA. Our vision is to reduce Nevada’s unemployment rate by helping Nevadans prepare for their desired career and become work-ready. The Workforce Readiness Committee serves employers by providing resources for training, internship and hiring assistance from state, higher education and non-profit organizations.
