UMOS and its partners offer low/no income job seekers and their families a wide range of workforce development programs and services in order to help them move toward economic self-sufficiency.
Workforce Development Philosophy
UMOS remains committed to developing and advancing Wisconsin's workforce to meet employer expectations.
UMOS believes a comprehensive approach to workforce development means substantial employer engagement, deep community connections, career advancement, human services support, industry-driven education and training, and the connection to employment networks.
Workforce Development can be a complicated policy issue; it straddles economic development, education, and safety net issues:
- We embrace the fact that there's no one-size-fits-all strategy or solution.
- We recognize that job-seekers and employers have unique challenges and situations, and our services are tailored to meet their needs.
- We acknowledge that we're in a time of increasing demand for qualified workers.
- We're committed to working with job seekers to provide education and skills that are necessary to compete in the workplace.
UMOS' Workforce Development Division provides a number of programs that operate in Wisconsin and Missouri.
