Oregon Workforce Investment Board
The Oregon Workforce Investment Board has identified three statewide strategies to achieve its goals over the next decade. Each strategy was selected because it achieves greater alignment and efficiency among programs and systems, is responsive to industry needs, and is tied to the Governor’s vision for prosperity.
Industry Sector Strategies

Critical industry sectors fuel the state’s economy. The workforce system must prepare workers for the higher wage, higher skill, in-demand occupations these sectors have to offer. This approach will create a mutual benefit for companies and workers.

Work Ready Communities
Oregon’s communities must have and be able to demonstrate the skilled workforce necessary for companies to locate and grow here. Workers must have the foundational skills to be able to succeed in and grow the companies in their communities.

System Innovation
Oregon’s workforce system must work to find new ways to operate more efficiently and effectively to meet new challenges and deliver on outcomes in a time of shrinking resources. Partners in the workforce system must work together in new ways, and leave behind the systems and approaches that are less effective at meeting the stated outcomes and goals of this plan.
