Site Selection Magazine: Business Climate Innovators

Missouri’s elected leaders are big believers in the tenet that you can never do enough to improve your state’s overall business climate. Because of that, they recently announced a series of initiatives aimed squarely at strengthening the state’s economy and spurring job creation for Missouri workers, according to a new article from Site Selection Magazine.

“We need to help more Missouri businesses grow and expand in Missouri,” said Rob Dixon, Director for the Missouri Department of Economic Development. “A well-organized effort between our state agency and our local partners will maintain and improve this area of job retention and growth — and show that we are serving and supporting businesses from a unified front.”

Missouri’s strategy includes reducing red tape, improving workforce training, tort reform and encouraging small businesses and entrepreneurs to start and grow in Missouri.

With a single click, businesses can now find the perfect training solution to meet their needs. They can also access recruitment tools to connect with qualified candidates. Leggett and Platt and 3M were the first companies to enroll in the new program.

The Department of Economic Development is also launching a statewide customer services platform that serves as a unified approach to supporting businesses in the state — making it easier for businesses to access the services they need.
