Industry Clusters of Opportunity


The Riverside County Workforce Development Board (WDB) adopted seven target industry sectors:  Construction, Transportation and Warehousing, Health Care and Social Assistance, Manufacturing, Retail Trade,  Administrative Support and Waste Remediation Services and Other Services, Except Public Administration, effective February 2020. These have historically proven to be high demand and recession resistant industry sectors.  The objective of the Riverside County WDB has been to establish target industry sectors that will provide the region with high growing and high wage jobs in order to create a stable and prosperous local economy.  Through research and analysis of labor market information, these target industry sectors meet the criteria of being the top industries with the greatest potential for economic growth, job stability, and resiliency during our current economic conditions.  Workforce development strategies will be implemented to meet the workforce needs of targeted industries, therefore promoting economic recovery, diversity, and growth.
