What drives our business community and can make or break supply chains and corporate growth?

Our Workforce.

Workforce is so vital to business that it is used as a barometer to determine a community’s health and potential. The Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce is deeply committed to addressing our region’s workforce challenges in creative and highly impactful ways. Its development is one of the Chamber’s top priorities and a key component of the strategic plan adopted in 2021.

As the largest and most influential Chamber within the Greater Washington D.C. Metropolitan Region, the Chamber is well-positioned at the nexus of business, nonprofits, and academia and is ideally suited to bring the community together to address our region’s workforce challenges and to collaborate on creative solutions. We believe it is imperative to create a demand-driven, workforce ecosystem that provides direct, streamlined connections to resources for all workforce stakeholders that accelerates the talent development process while driving innovation. Our transformative approach is demand-driven at every stage and addresses challenges made immediate by the global pandemic while remaining sustainable well beyond the economic stabilization and recovery periods.
