WorkLink Workforce Development Board (WDB) develops the link between employers and employees in Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties. The volunteer board of 25 directors ensures that the local workforce development system is market-driven and responsible in meeting the employment and training needs of businesses and job seekers. The board implements the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 in partnership with local service providers and through a comprehensive OneStop system that provides access points for employment and training services.
Our goal is to have a fully employed, skilled workforce, and to that end, we help job seekers find the tools to build their careers, and we work with businesses to hire quality employees. WorkLink funds programs for adults, dislocated workers, and youth, and supports employers through On-the-Job and Incumbent Worker Training programs.
