Regional Workforce Councils of Alabama

Formally established in 2015 by the Alabama state legislature via Act No 2015-450 the Regional Workforce Councils provide a direct link to the workforce needs of business and industry at the local level. The Councils are business-driven and business-led and work with their member counties to develop a regional strategic plan and comprehensive workforce development system that supports local economic and job development activities.

Councils monitor the workforce needs of business and industry in their region, then develop / implement practical solutions.  These range from hosting regional job fairs for immediate hiring needs, to addressing the short-term and long-term training needs of businesses.  Regional Workforce Councils are a key mechanism in helping to ensure that there is an available pipeline of highly trained workers with relevant skills that Alabama companies want.
