At Workforce Solutions Borderplex, we know that finding a job or building a globally competitive workforce takes a team effort. Luckily for us, our regional partners were willing to roll up their sleeves, bring resources to the table and work with us to ensure we address our region’s workforce issues.
And our work paid off. Our organization helped more than 30,000 jobseekers enter employment or find a new job in Board Contracted Year 2016, and we finally saw the regional unemployment rate drop below 5 percent. In the process, we served more than 5,250 local businesses.
