The Workforce Innovation for a Strong Economy (WISE) Plan is the culmination of a nearly yearlong effort to understand and address the workforce preparation, retention and recruitment challenges faced by businesses and communities across the 7 Rivers Alliance Region. The WISE Plan focuses on three areas for action: Talent Preparation, Talent Retention and Talent Recruitment. Interwoven throughout the WISE Plan are strategies and actions designed to address critical workforce impediments related to housing, transportation and childcare.

Each section of the Workforce Opportunities tab will provide useful diagrams and resources to highlight effective models in our area and how to facilitate them successfully.
