The Southwest Virginia Workforce Development Board (SWVA WDB) and its team of Business Services partners provide a wealth of knowledge and support to our region’s businesses. Serving Lee, Wise, Scott, Russell, Dickenson, Buchanan, and Tazewell Counties and the City of Norton, the SWVA WDB envisions being a businesses’ first call to meet their diverse needs.

Several businesses believe the Workforce Development Board is simply a support for hiring new employees and helping with job fairs. But we’re so much more! The WDB is actively working to provide area businesses with the most qualified, career-ready workforce that reflects the Southwest Virginia values of honesty, dependability, and resiliency. Through workforce readiness programs, grant-funded training for your current or future employees (already paid for through your company’s tax dollars), and listening tours to learn your company’s pain points, we aim to support the economic diversity and development that will sustain the quality of life in the region.
