Stay Workers Offered Incentive To Find More State Workers

State workers in Missouri are being offered incentives to recruit more people to most state agencies. The Show-Me’s Got Talent program pays employees bonuses if someone they refer gets hired and stays employed for 90 days. Dawn Sweazea with the Missouri Office of Administration says incentives range from 250 to 500 dollars per hire:

The 500-dollar incentive is awarded for positions designated as “hard to fill.” The Show-Me’s Got Talent program covers state agencies that are part of Governor Mike Parson’s cabinet. Mo-DOT, the Department of Conservation, and the Missouri State Highway are not part of the program.
