Employers on Pittsburgh’s Northside consistently face recruiting and retention challenges. At the same time, many residents are unaware of what good career opportunities are available to them. Strengthening the web of support between employers, job-seekers, and the wide variety of training providers and service organizations on the Northside will improve the area’s economy and its residents’ overall quality of life.

The Northside North Shore Chamber launched the NorthSideWorks! workforce development initiative in 2021 with the support of the Buhl Foundation. NorthSideWorks! connects employers, residents, training providers and service organizations to relevant resources to strengthen workforce development connections in the Northside. Through this initiative, gaps and labor supply and demand are addressed using consistent outreach and data-driven analysis.

The resources below are for residents, employers, service organizations, and training providers. You may also reach out to Quinn Kirby at quinn@northsidechamberofcommerce.com to discuss your workforce development needs.
