Workforce Solutions

The Rice & Larpenteur Alliance is proud to partner with Ramsey County as an Inclusive Employer Champion. As part of this partnership we share helpful employer and workforce resources provided by Ramsey County.

  • Ramsey County Launches Inclusive Employer Toolkit. As one of the most diverse counties in Minnesota, Ramsey County Workforce Solutions and Workforce Innovation Board are leading efforts to support employers to address discrimination and unconscious bias within their organizations. One of these efforts is the launch of an Inclusive Employer Toolkit. The toolkit aims to help employers provide a more welcoming and inclusive workplace for all by offering practices to build diversity, equity, and inclusion in the areas of employee recruitment, hiring, onboarding and retention.

  • If you are a jobseeker looking for ways to connect with recruiters, consider attending Ramsey County‚Äôs Employer of the Day every Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesdays: Roseville Library, 3-5pm ; Thursdays: Maplewood Mall, 11-1pm
