Workforce & Talent
Central Virginia recognizes the importance of cultivating and encouraging a talented workforce to ensure that current and future workers can align their skills with the needs currently in-demand by regional businesses.
A key feature of Embark is the Employer Network, a searchable tool that allows job seekers to find local employers and follow them on social media. There are currently about 55 companies in the network. There is no charge to participate.
The Piedmont Workforce Development Board, which is the workforce board for 10 counties plus the City of Charlottesville, creates and sustains connections between businesses and jobs seekers through Virginia Career Works, a statewide network of employment professional.
