The Region 3 Workforce Development Council, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama, formed West Alabama Worksto lead workforce development efforts throughout West Alabama. The regional workforce development system facilitates and implements a comprehensive, coordinated, seamless workforce development system for the region and supports workforce training activities. With a mission to promote economic prosperity throughout West Alabama by providing support services to business and industry and job seekers, West Alabama Works serves as the region’s central hub for workforce development efforts and training.
Through West Alabama Works, business and industry leaders have been able to create a workforce development system that supports all levels of development and serves to benefit both employers and job seekers. Industry clusters have been developed to address the needs of individual industry sectors. Those clusters are: automotive, health care, construction, manufacturing and professional and business services. Leaders of each sector work together to minimize duplication of services and maximize potential of each provider by communicating key workforce needs in a nine-county region through both urban and rural outreach programs.
