About Workforce Solutions
As the operating affiliate of the Gulf Coast Workforce Board, Workforce Solutions is the public workforce system in the 13-county Houston-Galveston region. We help employers meet their human resource needs and individuals build careers, so both can compete in the global economy.
During 2015, our Employer Service helped more than 26,000 employers find candidates to fill about 200,000 openings, outplace more than 4,000 workers, and get advice on human resources issues and concerns.
Our 25 local offices and seven adult education providers touched more than 380,000 individuals helping about 237,000 go to work, more than 22,000 improve their basic education skills, and more than 31,000 use $134 million in financial aid to get a job, keep a job or get a better job.
Our entire system worked to provide individuals, students, parents, teachers and counselors with up-to-date and useful information on the good jobs of the future - focusing on the high-skill, high-growth jobs that provide opportunities for growth and good wages.
