Submit A Workforce Innovation

A Workforce Innovation or Board Innovation is a success story that falls under broader program successes affecting more than one business or job seeker (a regional consortium; an annual event that supports hiring needs of local industry; an outreach program that was developed using specialized funding). Stories about these programs communicate an overall approach and philosophy more than a customer-level problem/solution/outcome. These Workforce Innovations will show the ways that business and industry, educational providers, and workforce organizations are coming together to align business needs with jobseekers and workers. If your story is a customer-level problem/solution/outcome, then Submit a Success Story rather than a Workforce Innovation.
