The Chamber co-leads community workforce efforts through the Westerville WorkWISE (Workforce, Innovation, Skills and Education) Collective. The Westerville Partnership came together to have a Talent Assessment & Development Strategy completed. The collective was an an outcome from the study to implement the goals and action steps to advance the Greater Westerville workforce attraction and talent development efforts.
The Collective develops a collaborative talent development ecosystem that leverages and links strategic state, regional, and local workforce partners to ensure all residents within Greater Westerville have opportunities to learn high-value and in-demand job skills to meet the needs of employers for today and in the future.
One of the outcomes from the Westerville WorkWISE Collective efforts has been the collection of workforce resources in the region/state. The Collective met with many of these providers to understand the services they provided and the best way to access their services. We categorized the workforce resources for quicker access here on the City’s website: https://business.westerville.org/business-support/workwise
