Betsy Alles, Executive Director, SCCC, (920) 457-9491 to provide employment opportunities to those

seeking a better job and quality of life

Major lakeshore employers announced a need for thousands of immediate direct, full-time

hires with hundreds more in the next few months. The announcement was made at a

press conference this morning in Sheboygan.

To connect job seekers to these opportunities, Sheboygan County Economic

Development Corporation (SCEDC) and Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce

(SCCC) revealed a new workforce attraction website,, which

will connect workers from around the nation with jobs, housing, educational alternatives

for their children, and introduce them to the beauty and strong sense of community the

Sheboygan County area offers. The site is complemented by a print newcomer’s

welcome guide.

Executives from Sargento Foods Inc., Bemis Manufacturing Company, Kohler Co. and

Aurora Health Care met with members of the media to outline jobs available at their firms.

Over 35% of available jobs require 4-year education; however, many companies offer

entry level jobs covering all aspects of training investment and compensation levels for

full-time employment that can pay $35,000 per year. Sheboygan County, Wisconsin still

offers the American Dream.

Betsy Alles, Executive Director for the Sheboygan County Chamber stated, “Sheboygan

County has more job opportunities than available workforce – a bonus for anyone looking

for employment. Sheboygan County offers a better life balance with short commutes,

globally-focused companies, world class recreation, innovative, award-winning schools

and friendly, safe communities. We are truly Someplace Better.”

“If you’re underemployed or stuck in a cycle of temporary work, Sheboygan County firms

have full-time careers that offer opportunity for advancement. Only 5% of Sheboygan

County job postings are for temporary or seasonal workers.” noted SCEDC Director Dane
