Workforce Development For Employers


Richmond: Virginia's Working Capital

Our team partners with your business to help you meet your workforce needs by facilitating connections to qualified job seekers. Based on your job descriptions and hiring criteria, the City works with our partners at the local, regional, state and federal levels to find or grow the workforce that will help your business thrive.

The Richmond Workforce Pipeline: How it works

The Pipeline is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we tailor every project specifically to your needs. Our five-step process works at the speed of business.

  • Workforce Needs Assessment
  • Strategic Staffing Plan
  • Recruitment and Training
  • Customized Hiring Event
  • Customized Satisfaction Feedback


Program Methodology

So, how do we develop a strategic staffing plan for your business?

First, we ask about your ideal candidates, developing an understanding of your unique business needs. Then, we work with local and regional partners to recruit, screen, and train qualified talent. The Pipeline is customized to meet your needs, enhancing your team's ability to find and hire the candidates you seek.

Throughout the process, one of our professional staff will be assigned to assist you - meeting with you regularly to see what we can do to continue to drive your success.

Because of our strong commitment to your success, you'll continue to receive "Service after the Sale". Our dedicated team of volunteers from local businesses stays in touch through the Business First program. The team reaches out to you and your business regularly to ensure your ongoing success and continued growth.
