Talent Pipeline Collaboration
Local collaboration plays a critical role in developing and maintaining our talent pipeline, and is seamless between our industries and educational eco-system. Our K-12 and post-secondary education providers support workforce needs with specialized training and continuing education. Impactful, proactive programs and strategies like those below have created a robust labor force in the Chippewa Valley!
Chippewa is Military Friendly!
Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation works with State of Wisconsin to invite veterans from across the state and country to learn about the family-supporting employment opportunities available in here in the Chippewa Valley. Military personnel who are separating from service or returning from deployment are finding that GI benefits go further in Wisconsin, with more opportunities available to both veterans and their families. Chippewa County employers enjoy direct access to a steady stream of technically skilled men and women who separate or retire from Midwest military installations each year with an emphasis on targeting the following:
- Fort McCoy which houses the 84th Training Command (Leader Readiness), 88th Regional Support Command and Wisconsin National Guard Military Academy
- Scott Air Force Base in Illinois which commands and controls all logistics of United States military in air, over land and across the sea
- Naval Station Great Lakes, the largest military installation in Illinois and the largest training center in the Navy
CCEDC will connect you to the expertise, programs, and support network to help you succeed. We can work with you to find financial programs that may be available to assist with:
Successful Transition to the Workforce – Students face many transitions during their academic career. The most important and often most challenging transition is entering the workforce. Prepare them with experiences that connect them to real people and real employers in the community.
Opportunities for Engagement & Achievement – Students are engaged in learning and motivated to succeed when classroom achievement is directly connected to career possibilities. Every student has an individualized plan to prepare them for life beyond the classroom. Inspire provides students real-world opportunities to connect with employers and careers aligning to future career plans.
Future Ready Experiences – Real-world connections to mentors, employers, and community members help students explore real life possibilities. They engage with people who know first-hand what different careers are like, and test drive options for their future. Educators facilitate experience beyond the classroom to make students more future ready, while community members and local employers help mold the next generation of community builders
