Firelands Forward

A North Central Ohio Workforce Development Initiative


Who’s Involved

Business & Industry

Driven by the region’s largest employers, Firelands Forward was born of local economic need.

Public Sector

Schools and government – essential pieces of a thriving region have come together to drive the Firelands workforce forward.


Between non-profits and engaged citizens, the community is the glue that binds our region’s workforce system together.


Cross-Sector Collaboration

Firelands Forward was commissioned by The Firelands Partnership – a business driven engine dedicated to advancing economic competitiveness and quality of life in the Firelands region.

We support talent retention, development, and attraction in the Firelands region

Regions that most effectively manage their talent will be more competitive in business retention and attraction and the development of jobs that people need to support themselves and their families.
