Workforce Development Task Force

The Workforce Development Task Force, a program of the Union County Chamber, has a mission to convene business, educational institutions, and workforce development organizations to attract, develop, and retain our community’s most important asset – our people.  Our goal is to meet the talent needs of business and industry now and in the years to come. 

 

Attracting and retaining a skilled workforce is the number one challenge facing businesses of all sizes in our community, particularly in high-demand industries like advanced manufacturing, healthcare, agriculture, and the trades (construction, auto-related, etc.).  The Workforce Development Task Force is facilitating a business-led approach to aligning resources to meet the needs of business, recruiting and developing talent, and seeking innovative solutions to stable employment for those facing obstacles to employment.
