The Centralina Workforce Development Board (WDB) and our local NCWorks Career Centers work together to help businesses and workers become more competitive. The Centralina WDB partners with educational institutions and businesses to create strategies to serve career seekers and help businesses seeking talent. In addition to preparing workers for career pathways, our NCWorks Career Centers also support businesses by helping them recruit and train a qualified workforce.
In the 2018-2019 fiscal year, we made over 27,000 internal job referrals, provided 200,000+ services to 23,000+ individuals and held close to 1,000 hiring events and career fairs. This year the employment landscape dramatically shifted, and these services are now needed more than ever. Centralina WDB will continue to look for innovative ways to help our region’s career seekers and businesses as we work towards a strong, vibrant economy.
