A WORKFORCE THAT WORKS AS HARD AS YOU DO
Developing our next generation of leaders has always been crucial to driving Wisconsin’s industry leadership. Through education, training programs and funding, we’re investing to ensure Wisconsin has the qualified talent to meet the future needs of business.
Our public and private colleges and universities, including the University of Wisconsin System, supports the researchers, companies and policy-makers across the state who are working together to develop solutions to the world’s challenges, ranging from sustainable resource management and health care to advanced manufacturing processes and materials production. The state’s highly ranked technical college system shapes our workforce through technical training that closes talent gaps in high-demand fields across a broad range of industries, allowing businesses the opportunity to scale as they grow. The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development works closely with employers, educators and economic developers at local, regional and state level to provide the support necessary to fill the jobs of today and tomorrow.
