Workforce Investment Board
About the Board
The Greenville County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) is appointed by the chief elected official in accordance with state criteria and is certified by the governor every two years. A majority of board members must represent diverse businesses in the Greenville area and hold positions as owners, chief executive officers, chief operating officers or have optimum policymaking or hiring authority.
The Greenville County WIB provides direction and leadership for the SC Works Greenville system. The WIB brings various partners together to provide services for the SC Works Greenville system as well as expertise to meet the requirements of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and the needs of Greenville County citizens. Since employers along with their employees are customers of the SC Works Greenville system, they have the leadership role in shaping the WIB’s role and direction.
The Greenville County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) holds regular meetings, which are open to the public.

The Greenville County Workforce Investment Board has partnered with eleven other community agencies to develop Greenville Works. Greenville Works is a partnership of local, state and federal organizations working together to help new and existing businesses in Greenville County meet their workforce and business growth needs -- and to enhance the economic growth and development of Greenville County. Greenville Works will collaboratively focus on four areas of improvement in Greenville County:
  1. Maintaining and refining feedback from the business community to understand needs as they relate to workforce, competitiveness, and other issues,
  2. Using that feedback to work with K-12 and higher education systems to develop curriculum and programs that prepare the workforce to meet the needs of business,
  3. Providing the best delivery possible of career related information to youth and adult populations to ensure their understanding of requirements, opportunities, and paths for a range of career options,
