  • Overview

    Since 2007, the Ohio Workforce Coalition has been bringing together leaders from education and training institutions, economic and workforce development organizations, business and industry, labor, and human service providers. The Coalition promotes public policies that build the skills of adult workers, meet employer skill needs, and strengthen the workforce system to ensure opportunity and prosperity for Ohio families.


I attended the Governor’s Workforce Policy Board Meeting today and listened to Governor Strickland talk about what he wants the Board to focus on in 2010. He laid out three target areas:

1) Establish a Manufacturing Certificate accepted in Ohio
2) Build upon the Ohio Means Jobs brand
3) Focus on Layoff Aversion strategies

What are your thoughts on these topics as core areas of focus for the board in 2010? Send feedback to Rebecca Kusner with BLOG in the subject line or comment below.
