COWS’ report profiles key economic and demographic trends in the vital SWSC (Southwest & South Central) corner of Wisconsin. It provides the background data needed to better understand the dynamics of the region, and suggests some important ways, given these data, to improve worker skills, firm productivity, economic development, and long-term planning in SWSC.
Seeds of Workforce Change represents a collaborative effort to align and strengthen economic and workforce development systems in the region. The report was produced by COWS, with the input of many key stakeholders in the region, for the Workforce Development Boards of South Central and Southwest Wisconsin. It was made possible by a grant from Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development as part of Governor Jim Doyle’s “Growing Regional Opportunities in Wisconsin” (GROW) initiative.
