The NOVA Workforce Development Business Coalition (NOVA-WDBC) is a newly formed group comprised of NOVA representatives, business industry and government professionals. The WDBC works together to determine, develop, and implement training and education solutions for production of a skilled workforce in the areas of industry need. The WDBC is needed to provide NOVA WDD with direct input from the business industry on what training and education programs need to be developed and delivered to the workforce to produce the skills being sought by employers. The NOVA-WDBC will focus on the skills gaps and high need areas in a clear and timely fashion in order to help produce more qualified skilled workforce personnel for industry and government. The first meeting of the WD Business Coalition will be December 3, 2013 at the Ernst Center on the NOVA Annandale Campus, from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

The Workforce Development Division will host a one day workshop teaching ways to foster valuable resiliency skills that are vital in today’s workplace. Stress in the workplace isn’t new, but today’s rapid-fire pace has brought job stress to new levels. Many people are dealing with increased workloads, decreased benefits, and worries about job security. On top of this, the growing use of technology makes it hard to “unplug.” This workshop is designed for individuals or groups from any occupation. You’ll leave with skills to persevere, adapt, and even thrive in your job!
