The Workforce Institute (WII) opened in March 2005. The organization's founder and principal is Robert J. Visdos. His knowledge and 32 years of experience in the workforce development field as both a practitioner and in management are keys to the organization's overall success. He has directly and indirectly supervised over 200 staff and an annual budget in excess of $28 million.


Workforce Institute is a sustainable and flexible entity that maintains relatively low overhead and relies on its ability to use associates (consultants) on an on-call, as needed basis, to keep its pricing and fees reasonable for its customers. Our associates who can be called upon for projects have all worked on a national or regional basis on workforce development issues and projects and represent more than 300 years of workforce development experience!


As a consulting and technical assistance organization, Workforce Institute has successfully worked with federal, state and local government leaders and officials, business and industry leaders, community college presidents and association presidents in developing programs and services to meet the needs of states, localities, organizations and specific constituencies.

The Workforce Institute and its associates have run national and international projects. WII also has a demonstrated record in working with organizations, boards, communities and government agencies in strategic planning or business planning process as well as in program design and implementation. No project is too large or too small.

Responsiveness WII adheres to the philosophy that "the customer always comes first". Workforce Institute strives to address each customer's specific needs and continually works with the customer to ensure that they are in agreement with the process, outcomes, and the product. Whether developing a strategic plan, leading a project or addressing a customer's specific need, WII believes that it is critical that everyone is on the same page. WII will always make sure that the customer's needs are understood and met from the beginning to the end of the project. That's why we have a 100% customer satisfaction and a 100% return rate among our customers!
