Workforce Development

Waukesha County is leading the charge in addressing the workforce issue. Working together with business leaders, educational leaders, public officials and other community advocates, we’re coming up with comprehensive solutions.

We believe three tenets make up a strong workforce development strategy:
1. developing our future workforce through partnerships with educational institutions
2. attracting new talent to our area
3. retaining and skilling up our existing workforce.

We are focused on supporting Waukesha County’s four high-growth, driver industries: manufacturing, health care, construction/skilled  trades and information technology.

We can help identify the labor force you need, the training necessary to provide the desired skills and available funding to cover a portion of training costs. We serve as a resource when expanding your talent base. Center for Growth staff works closely with partners such as Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington (WOW) Workforce Development, Waukesha County Technical College, local school districts and other educational and training partners to address your specific needs for talent.
