Talent retention and attraction are critical to business success. Whether you are seeking to increase the skills of existing employees or fill open positions, The GRWDB can help connect you with resources, services, and incentives to meet your business needs—all at no cost to you!

We understand the needs of each business are unique and we seek to provide you with a customized level of service. Therefore, we encourage you to contact our Staff for a confidential discussion.

Our process is simple; we first seek to understand your business needs to establish your key priorities, we then use our knowledge of the programs and services available to locate the appropriate opportunities, and lastly, we facilitate a discussion among company representatives with your new customized Business Resource Team.

Your Business Resource Team understands that attracting and retaining top talent is necessary to remain competitive in the marketplace. As a policy-making entity, the GRWDB wishes to not only help fulfill your immediate needs, but to develop a working relationship to ensure your needs are also being met in the future through the effective allocation of workforce investments.
