Employ Milwaukee serves as the workforce system “aggregator” in Milwaukee County – aligning workforce system partners in workforce and economic development, education and community partners and business. That is why Employ Milwaukee formed “Collabor8” as a place to share information and maintain partnerships among participating organizations.
