Building a Better Workforce in Alabama
Welcome to ADECA's Workforce Development Division. Alabama is at a pivotal point in time where workforce development is critical to the success and continued growth of our citizens and our businesses. Job skills, education, and training are the tools individuals need to obtain a job and enjoy the quality of life they desire.
Workforce development is preparing individuals with the occupational skills necessary for work; it is recruiting, placing, mentoring, and counseling potential employees; and it is combining education, employment, and job training efforts.
Alabama's workforce development system is working to manage persistent labor shortages, increase the business community's satisfaction with education and training, ensure that workforce development is equivalent to economic development, and integrate special populations into the economic mainstream.
