DWD Strategic Plan
Under the Governor's leadership, the state's business climate is improving and private sector jobs are increasing. Governor Walker has set a goal of 250,000 new jobs to be created in four years, and the state's workforce development system, particularly DWD, has a critical role to play.
It is within the context of Governor Walker's vision that the DWD Strategic Plan has been developed to guide agency activities over the next three years.
The goals of the DWD Strategic Plan are to:
- Connect Jobseekers to Jobs (250,000).
- Support the Development of a Highly Skilled Labor Force in Wisconsin.
- Achieve Unemployment Insurance Solvency and Increase Program Integrity.
- Deliver DWD Services More Efficiently and Support Increased Transparency and Accountability.
These goals not only help DWD fulfill its mission of advancing Wisconsin's economy and business climate by empowering and supporting the workforce, but the goals also reflect DWD's responsibility to improve operational efficiency and accountability, which aligns with Governor Walker's ongoing initiative to deliver programs and services in the most efficient way in state government.
