Workforce

The Chamber’s Workforce Division supports member and community efforts to ensure an adequate quality and quantity of workforce to meet employer needs. From recruiting to meet immediate requirements to building the workforce of tomorrow, there are opportunities at the Chamber for every member to participate in workforce development.


Recruiting

The high-tech economy and specialized skills required in Huntsville/Madison County make recruiting a top priority of the Workforce Division. The Chamber conducts outreach on behalf of our members, the community and the Tennessee Valley region to encourage job seekers from across the country to relocate here. Our recruiting site www.asmartplace.com includes a regional job search feature and information about living, working and playing in Huntsville/Madison County. A Smart Place brochures are available to Chamber members.

Our workforce division is passionate about hiring, training, teaching, developing, retaining and increasing the smart, talented people we have in our region.

So, let's move forward together as we plan for our current and future workforce.
