Our Vision - "A world-class competitive workforce for Southeast Texas."
Looking forward to 2019 - Our Hopeful Horizon!
For many of us in Southeast Texas, 2018 will be remembered as a time of ongoing recovery and rebuilding from Tropical storm Harvey. Still, the local economy continues its growth due to new businesses moving into the area and on-going industrial and manufacturing expansions. Our labor force has more employment opportunity than ever before as the number of available jobs increases to historical levels. Unemployment trends for our metropolitan statistical area (Jefferson, Orange and Hardin counties) have been exceptionally positive, 5.2 % and 5.9%, for October and September respectively.

As we look forward to 2019, our Board members, board staff and workforce center services providers and partners are eager to engage businesses, employers and job seekers each day. Our mission and goal to create a world-class workforce for Southeast Texas remains our guiding force for the upcoming new year.

Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas thanks you for your patronage throughout 2018. We wish you Happy Holidays and extend our hope for a wonderful and prosperous New Year!
