The Workforce Planning Board is monitoring COVID-19’s impact on local workers and employers. We invite businesses and employees to share how they’ve been impacted. Our office is temporarily closed. WPBGE and connect2SKILLS staff are working remotely and will respond to inquiries.
Our annual events touch thousands each year in Grand Erie and connect us
directly with potential employees and employers that need them.
