The Oregon Workforce Development System helps state residents obtain and succeed in family wage jobs while meeting employers’ needs for a skilled workforce. The system is intended to help all Oregonians reach their potential, regardless of disability, minority/ethnicity, or barriers to employment.
The system has two primary customers:
Job seekers/working learners, which includes the “emerging” workforce (youth 14-years old or older), “transitional” workforce (those transitioning from unemployment, dislocation or public assistance to employment), and current workforce (those currently employed).
Businesses who seek the best possible candidates for job openings provide data for continual improvement of services and partner on solutions for workforce challenges.
