A Message from Governor Daugaard

Many of us have friends and family members living elsewhere who'd like to make South Dakota their permanent home. By bringing individuals, employers, and state government resources together, the Dakota Roots program provides all the connections needed to turn dreams of living in South Dakota into reality.

The Department of Labor and Regulation has pooled its statewide employment representatives' expertise to ensure Dakota Roots' success. They are working with some of South Dakota's most dynamic and growing businesses to guide job seekers directly to the employer's door.

Dakota Roots features the kind of job opportunities that encourage families to move back to our great state, while supplying employers with a talented and productive workforce. Working together, we can provide better lives for those who are proud to call South Dakota their home.

Governor Dennis Daugaard
