Workforce System

​​​Wor​kforce Innovation and Opportunity Act

The federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014 guides and directs the public workforce development system in each state. Each year, the key programs that form the pillars of WIOA help tens​ of millions of job seekers and workers nationwide connect to good jobs and acquire the skills and credentials needed to obtain them. Oregon has the support of the federal government in these efforts to help state residents reach their full education and career potential. The HECC Offices of Workforce Investments (OWI) and other state offices and agencies work together and are primary partners​ in the implementation of WIOA in Oregon. WIOA is designed to help job seekers succeed in the labor market by providing them with access to employment, education, training, and support services and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.
