From the Atlanta Regional Commission:
WorkSource Metro Atlanta has launched atlworks.org, a website designed to provide a streamlined and seamless way for job-seekers and employers to navigate the resources available through the region’s WorkSource agencies.
Job-seekers can learn about WorkSource resources including job-readiness workshops, career training opportunities, and job application assistance. Visitors can also find contact information for their local Career Resource Center. By filling out a simple form, users are able to begin an in-depth evaluation process led by a personal career counselor that is assigned to them.
Employers visiting the site can learn about services designed to help businesses hire, train, and upgrade their workforces, such as identifying and screening potential new hires, training existing workers for new demands, and providing 50% or more in salary reimbursement for on-the-job training.
“The tagline for atlworks.org is ‘we’re improving the workforce,’ and that’s a terrific way to explain what the region’s WorkSource agencies are striving toward every day,” said Rob LeBeau, Director of the Atlanta Regional Workforce Development Board and Manager of the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Workforce Solutions Group.
