This technical assistance report - Skills Wisconsin: An Initiative to Improve Industry-Driven Worker Training, created by Maher & Maher for the Workforce Development Board of South Central Wisconsin discusses the results of a collection and analysis of pertinent information and intelligence from companies and individuals who provide staff capacity building and training to support the function of serving employers, also known as “business services”.
With the WIB’s goal of moving beyond a traditional jobseeker centered, transactional “job development” approach to a true demand driven system, they sought help in defining the training criteria and requirements, and identifying potential training firms that could be procured to retrain workforce professionals to view business as the customer and advance a more business centric culture.
