Employers Can Boost Workers' Skills under New Job Training Law


Employers will have increased opportunities to build the skills of their employees under the new, business-friendly federal law revamping workforce training programs, according to experts. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), supported by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and signed into law on July 22, 2014, replaces the Workforce Investment Act (WIA).


In addition to giving young people job-ready skills, the law will help businesses enhance the knowledge of existing employees. That’s particularly significant given the deep cuts that many employers have made in their training budgets in recent years.


The new law will allow local workforce boards to focus additional funding toward work-based training solutions for businesses.
Getting employers, educators and community organization leaders to work together to match workers with skills has proven to be a slow process in some communities. The WIOA provides a great opportunity for businesses to get involved.


To learn more about WIOA and how you may utilize this opportunity contact your CareerSource Heartland Business Representative.
