Business Investments

A strong workforce is critical to a strong economy. Skilled workers ensure that our local businesses can continue to compete and grow.

Worksystems provides customized and innovative solutions to complex workforce problems. We link workforce supply with industry demand and develop strategies to meet the just-in-time hiring, training, and retention needs of business.

We invest training resources to prepare people for in-demand occupations identified by companies in our advanced manufacturing, constructionhealth care and high tech target industries. We also provide workforce solutions in support of regional economic development recruitments and area employers who are hiring for living wage jobs. And because we take a regional approach to managing the talent pool through our work with the Columbia-Willamette Workforce Collaborative, we always ensure that companies receive the most qualified workers from throughout our labor shed.

Our staff are experts in the industries that they support and are continually analyzing the effectiveness of our programs and services to ensure that they meet the needs of business. We have a proven track record of bringing in new training resources to solve skill gaps and worker shortages in key occupations.

The end result is that business and industry throughout our region have the talent they need to thrive.
