Workforce Development is Our Mission

It’s What We Do!

The ECWDB collaborates with local businesses, government, and education partners to develop effective programs and services that improve the workforce. In doing so, we are creating a talent pipeline that will result in satisfied employers offering long-term employment and increased wage earnings.  

Our goal is to:

  • Engage business and community leaders in addressing workforce issues and promote strategies to improve basic workforce skills.
  • Assist job seekers with accessing the resources they need to find a great job, or to get access to education, training, and funds to get the qualifications they need.
  • Help employers find qualified workers and assist them with their business needs.  

Here on our website you will find the information you need to get connected with individuals that can help you.
