ABOUT WORKFORCE SOLUTIONS GREATER DALLAS

A robust workforce is a key component in the economic engine of the Greater Dallas Area and that's why Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas (WFSDallas) exists.  Its sole mission centers on providing competitive solutions for employers through quality people and for people through quality jobs.  WFSDallas is a quasi-governmental and non-profit organization.  Funded by federal grants and private money, WFSDallas is one of the largest nonprofits in Dallas.  Government funding sources have included Texas Workforce Commission, and the U.S. Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, Agriculture, and Education.  The Walmart Foundation, Schultz Family Foundation, Starbucks Foundation, and AARP Foundation are among the private partners that have added philanthropic resources to the solution.  

 

WFSDallas oversees more than $200 million annually and invests in all things workforce.  WFSDallas convenes, informs, designs, and invests resources to establish the workforce system for the Greater Dallas region.  WFSDallas ensures the development and implementation of a multi-faceted system of job training, job placement, and job retention services.  We meet employer and jobseeker needs while providing economic development support for our community.  

 

Upskilling current workers requires nontraditional tools such as e-learning, flex schedules for training, and wraparound services to balance work and learning. Quality care for the children of working parents is a vital wraparound service because many parents pass on job opportunities due to the lack of capable, affordable, quality child care. WFSDallas views the availability of quality child care as a building block to a stronger Dallas area workforce. 

MISSION

Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas exists to ensure competitive solutions FOR EMPLOYERS through quality people and FOR PEOPLE through quality jobs.
