    WIOA: Preparing for Success


    Wednesday, February 25th   |  1:00 PM EST


    Workforce Boards are in many different stages of readiness when it comes to WIOA implementation. In NAWB's numerous conversations with the Department of Labor, we hear more and more that boards must not wait for the rulemaking to be completed to take steps to ready their operations and infrastructure for the requirements of the new Act.  The Training and Employment Guidance Letter 19-14 outlines a vision for the workforce system and initial implementation of WIOA, stating, "State and local workforce system leaders should take immediate action to achieve the vision of modernizing the workforce system and ensuring it operates as a comprehensive, integrated, and streamlined system that expands opportunities for all workers and businesses." But what should this immediate action be?


    Byron Zuidema is the Employment and Training Administration's Deputy Asst Secretary, and is responsible for driving all technical assistance activities around the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.  On Wednesday, February 25th, Byron will join NAWB CEO and host Ron Painter for a Workforce Central interview on the Department's plans for technical assistance and guidance as workforce boards begin initial steps towards implementation. In addition, Byron will share insights on the actions boards should take now to develop their vision for their communities and regions, engage community partners at a higher level, and make sure their board infrastructure and operations are set up for success.  Don't miss this highly actionable discussion!

    Elevating Business Engagement: Beyond Preparing the Job Seeker

    Elevating Business Engagement: Beyond Preparing the Job Seeker


    Preparing job seekers to get them “employment ready” with the skills to meet the needs of businesses and industry is at the core of workforce development.  However, WIOA provides the workforce system with the flexibility to elevate our game and position ourselves within regional markets to engage business as a customer (with business services), as a partner (in sector strategies, apprenticeships, work-based learning) and even as a funder (to invest and leverage).   “It’s not about business learning workforce development; it’s about us learning business and translating that into our vernacular and our world—I think this is critical,” said NAWB President/CEO Ron Painter  in a recent video that focuses on WIOA and Business U. 


    Join Ron Painter for the Workforce Central Radio show at 1:00 PM EST on Wednesday, February 18th, as he interviews the executive leadership team from Business U in an exciting discussion about how workforce boards can make these key shifts to elevate business engagement in their regions.

    Wednesday, December 18, 2013  


    1:00 PM – 1:30 PM EST


    Can WIA funds be leveraged to assist communities during and after disaster events? How can workforce development organizations provide innovative solutions as part of a disaster response?  On the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, the National Association of Workforce Boards, in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Disaster Management (CDM), released a new research report titled The Impact of Extreme Events on Business Organizations: Innovative Approaches to Managing Risk.  In this episode of Workforce Central Radio, NAWB CEO Ron Painter interviews Dr. Louise Comfort, the Director of the CDM and author of the report. Drawing on research interviews with nine innovative WIBs who showed leadership in their communities during disaster events, they will discuss the important role workforce boards can take in helping their areas during times of disaster, the policies that should be in place to help maximize efforts, and how they can leverage existing programs and become a bridge between federal disaster programs and municipal/local efforts.  Please join us on Wednesday, December 18th for this insightful interview!
