Statewide, Iowa — The search for workers to fill open jobs continues to be one of the top priorities in surveys of Iowa businesses. Iowa Workforce Development Director, Beth Townsend, says the numbers for March don’t show a lot of workers leaving one job for another.

She says that may change when the numbers for April or May are released.

Townsend says there may have been an incentive to move to another job in the past — but businesses have taken steps to keep employees.

She says her agency tries that issue in evaluating the skills and needs of employees.

She encourages you to seek out help from Iowa Workforce Development if you are looking for a job.
