Employment and Training Services In Illinois 

  • Illinois Workforce Development Board - The Illinois Workforce Investment Board (IWIB) is appointed by the Governor and charged with the task of reviewing the progress of the state’s workforce planning efforts. It facilitates workforce development services and programs in such a way that together the government and the private sector can meet the workforce needs of Illinois employers and workers. To meet this directive, the IWIB, in accordance with federal legislation, includes leaders from state, business, industry, labor, education and community-based organizations.

    Through a task force structure and one standing steering committee, representatives from the mandated and optional private/public partner programs develop recommendations to present to the full IWIB for consideration. All policies developed or commented upon through the IWIB structure include input from the public and partners.
