Workforce Development

Removing Boundaries to Economic Growth

Workforce innovation requires skillful and purposeful collaboration among independent stakeholders – local and/or regional employers and business associations, local and state governments, American Job Centers and workforce boards, community colleges and universities, unions and labor-management partnerships, community organizations, and social entrepreneurs (just to name a few).

Five Star develops centralized technology that brings together workforce partnerships and the community – supporting students, workers, government, educational institutions, economic development agencies and more. From outlining objectives to implementation and training, we know how to expertly navigate workforce development initiatives to successful outcomes.
