Workforce Development

The business climate of Wisconsin’s Forest County is energized with companies whose products are marketed on the local and international stage. A skilled workforce, brimming with ambition and a strong work ethic, helps foster their success.

Workers here are resourceful and well educated. The Rhinelander campus of Nicolet Area Technical College and Northcentral Technical College in Antigo provides ample opportunities for continuing education and training.

Since our launch as Millennium Economic Development Corporation in 1995, Forest County Economic Development Partnership has been successful in helping existing businesses create and retain jobs through a myriad of programs and initiatives. FCEDP understands the needs of local businesses for quality workers to staff new and existing jobs.

The North Central Wisconsin Workforce Development Board is where local employers and job seekers connect. The Job Center can assist employers with recruitment, retention and referral services, and helps job seekers with job search, work readiness, job skill building and employment retention.

Grow North, serving five counties in Northern Wisconsin and consisting of selected community representatives, develops a skilled workforce by strategically allocating and coordinating resources to address community needs by working through others for the benefit of all.
