- In their continuous efforts to enhance customer service for Florida's job seekers and businesses, Workforce Florida Inc. and the Agency for Workforce Innovation recently added three new tools that will provide job listings in real-time and by geographic region, and help job seekers transfer current skills into new careers.
The three new tools, designed primarily to help workforce professionals better serve job seekers and businesses, are now being used throughout the state's 24 Regional Workforce Boards and 93 One-Stop Career Centers.
"Today's quickly evolving employment and industry landscapes demand innovative solutions, and Florida's workforce system is rising to that challenge," said Chris Hart IV, president and CEO of Workforce Florida. "These new resources will enable job seekers, businesses and stakeholders to take advantage of opportunities to find a job, expand their talent pool and have a more targeted impact on the labor market in their community."
Two of the tools, Help Wanted OnLine and TORQ (the Transferable Occupation Relationship Quotient), will be managed through the Agency for Workforce Innovation's Labor Market Statistics Center
. The third, In-Context LMI, will be managed by Workforce Florida as a component of the Employ Florida Marketplace (online at EmployFlorida.com
), Florida's official job-matching portal.
"These cutting-edge advances in real-time labor market information will greatly enhance our ability to respond to today's needs and prepare for tomorrow's opportunities," said Agency for Workforce Innovation Director Cynthia R. Lorenzo. "In direct support of our ongoing commitment to helping Floridians get back to work, these tools will improve our ability to connect job seekers with new employment opportunities and help identify emerging trends that will attract and support businesses."
Details of each workforce tool include:
With more than four million registered individuals and more than 90,000 registered employers, the Employ Florida Marketplace attracts more than 105,000 unique visitors each day and lists more than two million jobs annually. For media inquiries about Help Wanted OnLine or TORQ, contact:
