The Pierce County Workforce Development Council (Pierce County WDC) is a partnership of businesses, educators, economic development specialists, community-based organizations and government. This integrated workforce development system has three primary external customers – businesses, job seekers and incumbent workers. To ensure the workforce system is strongly aligned with business’s needs, employers are active stakeholders in the design, delivery and evaluation of the local workforce system.
