Hendricks County’s workforce is skilled and getting stronger every day

Hendricks County, Indiana offers employers a large, highly skilled workforce that has helped the county maintain its economic strength even during regional and national downturns. Thanks to the county’s outstanding quality of life, many people choose to live here, where they can be close to their jobs.

All segments of Hendricks County work collaboratively with the State of Indiana to keep that economy strong, with a clear focus on workforce development. The county’s six public school districts, all among the state’s top-rated (with many achieving coveted four-star status), are focused on delivering the knowledge young people need to become productive members of the workforce. Programs such as Project Lead the Way and the Area 31 Career Center introduce high school students to fields with strong demand, among them robotics, engineering, CNC machining, welding, and logistics. Advanced Placement and Dual-Credit classes give students an affordable head start on postsecondary education.

The county also has a strong presence of higher education providers, with many colleges and universities offering classes and programs focused on the specific skills local employers seek. Examples include the Vincennes University Logistics Training and Education Center, Indiana State University’s local MBA program, and a long list of classes from Ivy Tech Community College. Hendricks College Network is a local non-profit that connects employers with the specific training their employees need. Indiana, a longtime right-to-work state, also offers generous incentive programs to help employers offset the cost of specialized training.
