Employing Omaha November 2020
Every month, Strictly Business celebrates the accomplishments of local businesses and praises the excellent products and services they provide in their fields. This year, we decided it’s important to recognize these businesses as amazing employers, as well. That is why we created this biannual Employing Omaha feature—to give companies the chance to promote career opportunities along with their team culture, employee benefits, training and continued education options, etc. The more companies that value a positive team culture and make it a priority to be one of the best places to work, the better we all are as a community. These are those companies, and we owe each of them a big “Thank you!” Especially now when there are many skilled workers who have found themselves without a job or are experiencing job insecurity due to COVID-related budget cuts, it’s good to know what reputable businesses are hiring locally. This might apply to you or a loved one. Either way, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the following business. Maybe you’re ready for something new in your career or you’re still waiting to find your true passion. Don’t be scared to explore what is out there. This is a good place to start.
