About Us

The Workforce Investment Board (WIB) of Will County is a local board appointed by the County Executive, and includes business, community and education leaders, one-stop partners, economic development agencies and labor executives. The Board, in collaboration with our private and public sector partners, leads the creation and implementation of an integrated workforce system that meets the needs of our job-seekers, our employers, and the communities that make up Will County.

The WIB is responsible to set the policy, which creates an accountable, responsive, and customer-focused workforce development system. 

  • Ensure training meets business and labor market needs through a system of one-stop service centers and qualified service providers
  • Designate, certify, and oversee one-stop operators
  • Identify training providers and require that they meet industry standards
  • Set local performance measures for the training and employment services
  • Establish systems for gathering and publicizing local employment statistics
  • Supply information on labor market needs
  • Build links among workforce and economic development activities
  • Create measures of customer satisfaction

We partner with State, Regional and Local agencies to ensure that the workforce system delivers a seamless, customer-focused service network that enhances access to all program services and improves long-term employment outcomes for individuals receiving assistance. Workforce partners administer separately funded programs as a set of integrated services to customers.
