The Alameda Workforce Investment Board
Alameda County's Workforce Investment Board establishes services that provide individuals with information necessary to make informed consumer choices regarding their careers and the steps necessary to achieve their employment goals. All services are aimed at helping individuals manage their own careers and professional development.
The is guided by these key principles:
- One-Stop Centers will provide universal access to core services
- The system will deliver customer choice through individual training accounts and a consumer report card
- There will be performance accountability throughout the system and flexibility within the system
- Youth programs will be community driven
The WIB will promote the leadership of the private-sector for the system's strategic planning and development.
The WIB's vision is at the end of five years, the local workforce development system will be a more efficient, user friendly, customer focused, results driven system serving a broader range of clients than the system that exists today. Employers and business will perceive real value in the system's services and in the system's ability to provide skilled workers in a significantly greater capacity than that of the current system.
