Workforce Development

Investing in Our People

The Buffalo Billion will create the most flexible, inclusive and industry-driven workforce training environment to prepare workers for success and allow employers to grow.  There are several initiatives underway to address gaps in workforce skills so that the region can meet current and future market demand and create a more inclusive workforce.  The keys to success in workforce development are expanding training programs in high-growth industries and occupations, up-skilling/right-skilling the workforce to meet evolving skill requirements of local employers, and ensuring opportunities for underrepresented groups in the workforce.
