WORKFORCE INNOVATION AND OPPORTUNITY ACT (WIOA)DRAFT LOCAL PLAN

New Mexico

~~“Local Employer Engagement:
The private sector driven board and its CEOs are very cognizant of the diversity of the constituency it serves. Employer engagement will help align programs with employer needs to improve the potential for job seekers to obtain steady secure jobs in career pathways that lead to stackable credentials and self-sufficiency and create the foundation necessary for a vibrant diverse local economy. As such, offering the highest level of customer service to all its customers is of primary importance. The board vision places employers as the primary customer of the system. Therefore the board views its  role to job seekers as ensuring, to the fullest extent possible, that individuals are trained to be able to succeed both now and the future in the current and emerging workforce in the area. This is why chambers, economic developers and small business development professionals are being asked to join the board’s committees to serve as advisors to the establishment a strong workforce development system.”
