The Three Rivers Workforce Investment Board is changing its name to Partner4Work. The change in name and branding coincides with a campaign this year to better reach the Pittsburgh region’s roughly 40,000 people who are unemployed or underemployed and connect them with employers and support groups. “This is more than a name change,” the group said in a statement. “This is the promise that Partner4Work will continue to support greater flexibility within the workforce system as we connect disadvantaged populations with sustainable employment opportunities and local businesses with skilled talent.”
Nationally recognized for innovation, Partner4Work delivers workforce solutions for Pittsburgh and Allegheny County to ensure the current and future needs of businesses and job seekers are met. As stewards of more than $20 million in public and private workforce funds, Partner4Work oversees and funds workforce programs for adults, dislocated workers and youth; educates the community through robust labor market analytics; and implements innovative solutions to the region's systemic workforce challenges. Partner4Work bridges the gap between people looking for work and companies in need of talent. More information is available at www.partner4work.org.
