Workforce

According to the International Economic Development Council’s Web site, “Workforce development and/or training refers to community efforts to train individuals for specific jobs or industries. The goal of workforce training programs is to improve the quality and skill sets of individuals, to place them in jobs, and help businesses find an employee base in line with their needs. A good workforce training program, therefore, serves two customers: individuals and businesses.”  To find out more, visit the IEDC website.
