The Office of Workforce Transformation has prioritized its work with three strategic goals that drive our work and provide our focus:
Workers and training institutions do not have a reliable, consistent method for identifying the most in-demand jobs or the skills that workers need to fill them. Developing that ability—and encouraging participation from employers—is the first step to aligning the system and training programs with those needs
Business in Ohio struggles to connect with qualified people to fill high-demand job openings. We are missing critical opportunities to expose and inform students of Ohio’s most in-demand jobs. With a directionally accurate forecast of businesses most urgent job needs, our education and training system will be in a better position to fill the gaps
Ohio’s workforce development efforts are spread out across 91 programs in 13 agencies. We are committed to moving reforms to create more efficient, responsive and effective services for employers and workers. With better alignment, we will reduce redundancy, fragmentation and lack of coordination to improve the state and local programs that fuel our workforce system.
