If you are interested and committed to self, business and community development, join us in building and growing a Thumb Area Community of Commerce.


  You are the most important person in our business.

√  You are not dependent on us; we are dependent on you.

  You are not an interruption of our work; you are the purpose.

√  You do us a favor when you use our services; we are not doing you a favor by serving you.

  You come to us with your needs; it is our job to fulfill them.

√  You pay our salaries; without you, we would have to close our doors.

  You deserve the most courteous attention we can give.

Let us take this moment to say, “Thank you. We appreciate having you as a friend.”


Thumb Area Michigan Works! operates under several basic beliefs regarding the people of the Thumb Area. These assumptions govern how the agency works to help people.

People in the Thumb Area want to work.

There is a wide range of opportunities for gainful employment in the region.

Workers can be connected to these opportunities through increased career-planning efforts and lifelong education.

Connecting employees to better opportunities allows them to be more engaged and more vested in the community.

The more that employees are fulfilled through their employment and engaged in the community, the better the economy of the Thumb Area will be.
