Workforce Development Board

The Burlington County Workforce Development Board (WDB) is committed to building and maintaining a workforce of the highest quality to help businesses grow or retain their workforce. The WDB strives to implement a workforce system of services that are a resource for local business to access quality employees they need, and training individuals to be successfully employed.

The primary responsibility of the WDB is to serve as an alliance of the public and private sector for the purpose of coordinating planning, policy guidance and oversight of employment and training activities in Burlington County. In partnership with the Board of Chosen Freeholders, the overall goal is to develop and sustain a unified; labor market-driven system that can deliver needed services to job seekers and employers in an effective and cost efficient manner.

The WDB does not actually operate programs, but works to influence the management of workforce development activities by analyzing local needs and coordinating Federal, State and local resources. Much of the Board’s work is done through its committees and sub-committees, which include the Executive Committee.
