CTWorks One Stop Recognition Day in New Britain
(New Britain) - Each year, nearly 16 million Americans receive job placement assistance from our nation’s “One-Stop Career Centers.” In Connecticut alone, over 80,000 residents received assistance ranging from help with their resume and interviewing skills to obtaining full-fledged training – some with certifications and job placement. Additionally, many businesses receive support from One-Stops with services ranging from recruitment assistance, to specialty training, tax credit programs and rapid response teams for staffing adjustments.
Last year, the Local Workforce Coalition comprised of the National Association of Counties, the National Association of Workforce Boards, The U.S. Conference of Mayors and the National Workforce Association instituted a National One-Stop Week slated for the last week of May. This year we will focus on successes at the New Britain One-Stop.
