How the Cluster Model will help your business:
To meet the growing need for businesses to hire and train skilled workers, we partner with regional business and industry leaders to develop Industry Clusters. These clusters put the most influential people in their respective fields together in the same room to discuss ways to provide information on how to properly train and equip potential employees with skills that are prerequisites for being successful within each industry. Our Industry Clusters are an invaluable resource to our region that ensures we provide opportunities to our citizens specific to our communities’ jobs and careers.
The success of our workforce model is based on cluster engagement and direction. Though our model is industry-driven, we still have a tremendous engagement with our education partners and service providers, who also engage at all levels.
We have several clusters that meet regularly to focus on employment and training needs in our region. As needs are identified, each cluster may form a task force to work on a particular project or initiative. If you want to get involved on the front lines of workforce development, join an industry sector cluster. To get involved, see below.
