Piedmont Workforce Network
In today’s knowledge-based economy, our community’s ability to attract, retain, and grow new industry depends on a skilled workforce. An integrated, effective workforce development system can provide local residents with the skills needed to fill new jobs with expanding companies and can contribute to our community’s attractiveness as a place to locate a business.
Aligning workforce programs with overall community strategies will encompass transportation, housing, education, social service and physical infrastructure improvements. Developing systematic linkages between economic development and workforce development provides enormous benefits to employers, workers, and the community as a whole.
