Welcome to Workforce Designs, Inc.
Workforce Designs, Inc., established in July of 2000, is a highly successful performance-driven company whose 2 principal officers have over 45 combined years of workforce development and grants management experience. The company was formed on the belief that a strong partnership between the private & public sector will leverage resources and produce win-win outcomes for all involved. Workforce Designs, Inc. has established contracts with private sector businesses, as well as public sector organizations. Workforce Designs, Inc. has helped secure over $48 million dollars for its clients (with over a 90% hit rate for funding approval). The company’s success can be attributed largely to the experience gained by the 2 principal officers while they worked in the area of federal funds administration within the public sector.
