The department connects employers with resources to find a trained and ready workforce, and assists job seekers with needed skills to secure sustainable employment by communicating employer needs to local training program administrators and workforce partners.

The City also helps facilitate programs such as Ankeny Leadership Institute to train future Ankeny leaders in valuable leadership skills and the Student Academy and Teacher Externship Program to get hands on business experience for both students as well as their teachers in the Ankeny business community.
