Workforce Investment Board Industry Partnerships

Industry Partnerships are the cornerstone of Pennsylvania’s new, industry-led, demand-driven workforce development strategy. This new strategy is focused on creating a skilled workforce through industry-specific training and education programs developed in cooperation with business and industry leaders – with funding made possible through the support of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Industry Partnerships bring together multiple employers in the same industry group or cluster to identify and address common workforce needs. These partnerships provide companies with a more cost-effective way to provide training to their employees – training they may not otherwise be able to afford on their own. In addition, Industry Partnerships provide companies with access to region – and industry – specific labor market information, and allow even the smallest businesses to better compete in the global marketplace.
