How SWN Collaborates with Industry

Maryland businesses invest substantial money each year in recruiting and training their employees. Despite these substantial investments, employers continue to report that too many job seekers are unqualified for modern jobs. The Susquehanna Workforce Network creates innovative partnerships with regional business and industry, economic development and educators to solve broad-based workforce challenges to build a highly talented regional workforce.
