Strategic Workforce Planning for Bastrop County


About this Event

We would like to invite you to join us for a roundtable discussion about workforce development in Bastrop County. The discussion will inform the planning process that we are currently undertaking to develop a set of strategic plans to guide our work in each of the counties that we serve.

Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area (WSRCA) has engaged TIP Strategies to lead the strategic planning process. They will be supported by WSRCA staff and designated committees of key stakeholders and community leaders. During this process, the project team will develop county-specific strategic plans and a regional plan that will set forth specific goals to strengthen our workforce delivery system in alignment with our labor market needs.

The roundtable discussions in your county will be held at the location and time below:
