The Omaha Legacy
One of the things that makes Omaha a great place to work and to live is a sense of community. Many of the stories in this issue share the theme of community–in business development, workspaces, and even play.
In her Greater Omaha Chamber column, Veta Jeffery describes her move to Omaha and the diversity of communities and experiences she’s discovered. She also shares her vision for how businesses, developers, and city leaders will continue to build communities through shared experiences.
Our main feature concerns another kind of community: the workforce. Stan Odenthal of Heartland Workforce Solutions describes how they are connecting employers with workers in the post-pandemic labor shortage. And Goodwill’s Tobi Mathouser explains how innovative programs are providing opportunities to find employment and for young adults to continue their education.
LinkedIn’s Omaha office uses a “dynamic works environment” as a neighborhood seating model which allows people to build community as they collaborate on projects in a shared space. They are also allowing more flexibility where employees work–not just how they work–through hybrid, remote, and in-office roles.
Appearing on the cover and the After Hours section, Martie Cordaro describes how he found community through the shared experience of music. Although he may be a busy man as president of both the Omaha Storm Chasers and the Union Omaha Soccer Club, he still makes time for his band, Strange Pleasures.
I hope this issue inspires you to try a new experience and enjoy your community, whatever that may be.
