Business Resources

Business Services available by the Workforce Development Board provide economic and workforce development resources to the business community. In partnership with the SLOCal Careers Center Employer Services, Business Services provide a link with economic development, sector strategies, workforce-focused solutions, marketing, Labor Market information, and referrals to an inventory of programs and services which make up the broader economic development system in San Luis Obispo County.


This Business Resource Guide was developed as part of a Business Engagement Plan that outlined the resources and options an employer could pursue to address assessment findings. This includes providing the Business Resource Guide and linking the employer to local, state, and federal resources. We try to ensure information is up-to-date and accurate. If you would like to request an update to your organization’s listing, please contact us at (805) 781-1908.
