Employers seek creativity in today’s workforce

WEST BEND—Darci Conner likes to create. And that is one thing she hopes she can pass on to her students when art classes begin at the West Bend-Mallard School District on Aug. 24.

“Creativity is one of the things employers are looking for these days,” she said. “They’re looking for somebody who can send a business in a different direction so they can be more successful.”
