There are approximately 329,000 people in the workforce within a 60-mile radius of El Dorado. Because the areas east and north of El Dorado have a strong farm/ranch emphasis, many employers comment on the strong work ethic of employees hired from this region. The Butler Workforce Center offers excellent customer service to companies during and after their initial hiring process.
BETA at Butler Community College is very responsive to the training needs of El Dorado businesses. BETA works with the Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas and the Kansas Department of Commerce KIT and KIR programs to provide customized training for businesses in the Wichita area.
