Site started for Workforce3

The President's High Growth Job Training Initiative

The Labor Department recently launched a new interactive Web site to help individuals, employers and others discuss and learn about national workforce issues, such as skills and training.

The site, called Workforce3 One, was created to promote a program that was launched in 2001 to help community colleges, public workforce agencies and employers produce workers with skills that are most in demand.

"The President's High Growth Job Training Initiative is a strategic effort to prepare workers for new job opportunities in high-growth sectors of the American economy," said Emily Stover DeRocco, the department's assistant secretary for employment and training, in a press release. "Workforce3 One is a way for educators and employers to interact with the public workforce system, sharing ideas and experiences to better prepare American workers for today's highly competitive economy."

The site, www.workforce3one.org, will provide Webinars, which are live online seminars with experts or virtual classroom sessions, on expanding industries, partnership opportunities, current workforce skills and skill gaps. It will also provide updated research and information databases with best practices and discussion forums, and other virtual tools.

Labor, the National Association of State Workforce Agencies and the National Association of Workforce Boards collaborated on the site.
