One Workforce for West Michigan Manufacturing is a new initiative that brings together West Michigan employers, economic development, workforce development, community colleges, and community organizations. The programs purpose is to strengthen existing, and create new, talent pipelines for Michigan manufacturers.
As a lead partner, Grand Rapids Community College is looking for individuals who are unemployed, or underemployed who may benefit from developing new skills to help them enter the manufacturing workplace.
GRCC and our partners are tasked with increasing the skill level of available workers to fill existing job openings and meet employer needs for expansion. These jobs are in well-paying, middle- and high-skilled, and high-growth jobs in a variety of advanced manufacturing occupations.
