In this webinar, we will look at how states are successfully engaging with businesses to best serve workers and get them reemployed.  The strategies discussed will help support targeted business needs and subsequently support seamless transition from training into employment.  This includes making training opportunities to match business needs, building connections with the business community, and getting business involved in the training process.
