Workforce Centers Instructions and Expectations
From the very beginning of WORKNOW, it’s been our CORE belief that YOU matter, and can help change the industry and make our community better. More than ever, we’re leaning into our original commitment during these challenging times, understanding that we’re building more together.
WORKNOW will help you to get the skills you need to make sure that you are prepared to work and find new skills to meet the demands of these essential workers.
WORKNOW is launching its 2020 recruitment campaign on Saturday, August 15th! Over the course of three months, ending on November 15th, we will use digital marketing campaigns to highlight key events for job seekers interested in the construction industry. We would like to bring your workforce center into the recruitment effort so that you can direct your job seekers into an in-demand industry that offers sustainable wages with career advancement opportunities.
As a partner workforce center, we want to invite you to be a part of the events that will take place between August 15th – November 15th. If you have any networking nights, orientations, job fairs, or other significant construction-related events, we ask that you post them in the Portal/Google calendar. We will be using this calendar as the time table for when our social media posts go live.
For this recruitment campaign, we ask that you use the link to our digital toolbox. This toolbox holds the expectations we have for recruitment with CORE Partners, the digital assets you can use for this quarter, and the instructions that navigators will need to successfully enroll people into the WORKNOW program. (If your workforce center does not have a navigator, we will assign one to the people you refer.)
The benefit of participating in this campaign is the added visibility to your workforce operations, as well as the access to training opportunities paid by WORKNOW for your job seekers.
We look forward to your continued collaboration. The first social media post can go out no later than August 13th to promote our first Peer-to-Peer networking night (post attached)! I will be in touch with future dates to post and share. If you have any questions or would like me to speak more directly to your team, please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you so much!
