Skills Development Inquiry
Wisconsin Fast Forward provides financial and technical assistance to Wisconsin businesses through employer-led worker training grants in response to a demand for skilled workers borne out by labor market data.
We strive to deliver flexible, customized training solutions that help Wisconsin employers recruit, train or retain a qualified and productive workforce.
To help us respond to businesses with a need for skilled workers, it is vital that we hear from businesses about your talent needs that can’t be met by an existing program. The information you provide, in combination with available labor market data, drives the grant announcement development process.
Do you have insight on a business or business sector that is having difficulty attracting and retaining qualified workers?
Do you have an innovative strategy for building human capital, skills and talent in Wisconsin?
Do you have a suggestion on a collaborative effort that can improve the manner in which we develop and deploy talent?
