Workforce Development

Workforce development remains the number one issue facing Waukesha County, our region, and our state. The Alliance provides a robust strategy fostering three key tenets to help employers develop, attract, and retain talent. We continue to build and expand discussions, programming and tactics that support these areas. 



We develop our future workforce through solid partnerships with educational institutions and the business community helps prepare the students of today for the jobs of the future.


Talent attraction remains a high priority for the region. Discussions on placemaking, culture, housing, transportation, policy and more play an integral part in attracting employees to Waukesha County. 



We work to retain and skill up our existing workforce through professional development programming, shared regional workforce initiatives and partnerships with educational institutions showcases Waukesha County employers' commitment to their current employees. 

The Talent Solutions Council drives workforce development solutions and shares best practices to develop, attract and retain talent. This includes developing our future workforce through business education partnerships, attracting talent to the region and retaining talent through training and development.
