The Workplace



About Us

The WorkPlace serves Southwestern Connecticut as its Workforce Development Board, helping people prepare for careers and strengthening the workforce for employers. Our many programs and partnerships — including job training, career services and employment — have made a difference in the lives of thousands of Southwestern Connecticut residents. We have been an advocate, steward, resource and community partner, working to address the region’s present and future workforce issues and community needs.

In recent years, The WorkPlace has expanded services and geographic coverage on a targeted basis. We have forged new partnerships, driven by common goals, smart economics and supported by innovative funding sources. Our collective expertise building projects and delivering results often leads to new opportunities. We are always asking, “How can we do it better?” This spirit infuses our passion for making a difference through innovation.
