Industry Cluster of Opportunity



As of January 16, 2013, the Riverside County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) currently has adopted six target industry sectors: healthcare, logistics, renewable energy, utilities, infrastructure, and professional & business services, which have historically proven to be high demand and recession resistant industry sectors.  The objective of the Riverside County WIB has been to establish target industry sectors that will provide the region with high growing and high wage jobs in order to create a stable and prosperous local economy.  Through research and analysis of labor market information, these target industry sectors meet the criteria of being the top industries with the greatest potential for economic growth, job stability, and resilliency during our current economic conditions.  Workforce development strategies will be implemented to meet the workforce needs of targeted industries, therefore promoting economic recovery, diversity, and growth.
