Tap into our partner network

From local career boards and job fairs to programs at Colorado Mesa University and the comprehensive services offered at the Mesa County Workforce Center, there are numerous resources within the Grand Valley to help you source the right talent for your business.

Opportunity meets accessibility

The Grand Valley is set up to support a remote workforce. We are a pioneer of the Colorado Location Neutral Employment incentive program (aka LONE grant). We’ve got a robust infrastructure and flexible work solutions to accommodate remote work situations. And we’ve already got a growing network of peer remote employers to provide expertise and lessons learned – Cloudrise, ProStar and Pax8, to name a few.

 

A Cash Incentive to Hire Remote.

The Location Neutral Employment (LONE) incentive is an established cash incentive that opens the doors for businesses to receive state funding when they hire remote employees. With our western work ethic, unmatched tech opportunities, and ranking as one of the top 100 best-preforming small cities, taking advantage of the LONE incentive has never made more sense. Depending on the amount of LONE eligible employees, each remote worker is eligible for up to a $6,500 annual incentive.

If you have a remote team, or are ready to launch one, and value big city connectivity and small-town hospitality, the Grand Valley is the ideal choice for you and your employees.
