The vision of the Panhandle Workforce Development Board is to establish and enhance a workforce delivery system that serves the needs of area employers, job seekers, and constituents with efficient and effective services by promoting collaboration among stakeholders, creating partnerships with other community organizations, and focusing on workforce issues.
The Panhandle Board and its partners together implement an Integrated Plan, which directs local entities in their efforts to build a labor force that sustains local communities and supports a positive economic climate. Section I of the plan describes the Panhandle Workforce Development Area’s strategic goals and objectives and outlines the challenges that the Panhandle Board will address during the period of July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2020. This is a required two-year modification of the original plan submitted in 2017.
The Panhandle Board also supports regional economic growth and economic self-sufficiency that will guide the development and provision of services during the four-year period of the Panhandle Workforce Development Area Integrated Plan, described below in the strategic elements.
