TWC, TxEDC Partner on Workforce Development

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) and the Texas Economic Development Corporation (TxEDC) launched a statewide effort to develop a shared workforce development strategy.  The statewide initiative will identify existing successful strategies and additional partners to incorporate into efforts.

“It is essential that we continue to provide Texans with the skills and knowledge they need to flourish,” said Abbott. “This statewide effort by TWC and TxEDC will help communities across our state apply innovative strategies to strengthen workforce training.”

The initiative will begin with a series of webinars, hosted by TWC Chairman Bryan Daniel and TxEDC President and CEO Robert Allen, that will highlight local efforts and winning strategies that can be leveraged statewide.

Daniel said, “One important goal for this initiative will be to build a coalition for a shared workforce strategy to strengthen the ability of local communities to address workforce needs, while fostering lasting statewide economic success.”
