DEVELOPING THE TALENT NECESSARY TO DRIVE BUSINESS GROWTH (AND VICE VERSA)

Through collaboration between the business community and the state’s educational institutions, investment in our communities, and engagement with young people seeking career and personal fulfillment, Wisconsin is attracting and retaining skilled workers whose ambition and talent drive the state’s economy. Wisconsin’s 26 UW-System schools, including the UW-Madison, 24 independent colleges and universities, and 16 technical colleges produce inquisitive, highly-qualified workers whose skills align with high-demand fields across a broad range of industries. The result is a productive workforce that supports business growth and innovation.

WEDC supports workforce development in Wisconsin not only by investing in skills training programs, but also by promoting the unique opportunities our state offers for people to succeed both professionally and personally.
