The McHenry County Workforce Network Board is pleased to provide the most current information available on jobs, occupations, industries, wages, unemployment and business-related statistics that gives an overview of the economic climate in McHenry County. This information is summarized in the 2018 McHenry County Labor Report.
The McHenry County Workforce Network Board (LWDB) is a local business led organization responsible for developing policy and overseeing local workforce development initiatives in partnership with our local elected officials. The LWDB's role is to ensure that the local workforce development system is market-driven and responsive in meeting the employment and training needs of McHenry County employers and job seekers alike.
The LWDB and the McHenry County Workforce Network are established and funded by the Federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Partnering with leaders from business, economic development, education, labor, community organizations, and local elected officials we work to identify employer and worker needs and to develop programs and solutions.
