The Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington Workforce Development Board has added a Business Services Unit to provide assistance to growing businesses in Waukesha County.
The unit will provide a single point of contact for all hiring and economic development inquiries from expanding businesses in the area. It is being offered in cooperation with the Waukesha County Economic Development Corp.
WCEDC and the WDB formed the business unit in response to business’ requests for financing assistance and access to qualified applicants during expansion projects.
“We see this as a way to serve businesses with critical talent and economic development needs, with greater efficiency,” said WDB president Francisco Sanchez.
“Our economic development corporation works through a network of trusted partners in finance, real estate, infrastructure and local governments in the county. The Workforce Development Board will serve the talent needs of our economic development clients seeking to expand their operations or relocate to a growing Waukesha County,” said Jay Mack, president of the WCEDC board.
