Pittsburgh Works continues to be a cornerstone of Partner4Work’s efforts to connect job seekers and businesses. Since 2012, Pittsburgh Works has united more than 80 workforce development organizations and developed a common platform to assess and path job seekers into jobs.
Pittsburgh Works has made an overall investment in Pittsburgh's regional workforce of more than $1.3 million. As a result of that investment, Pittsburgh Works-related programs have served more than 900 employers, trained 422 job seekers, developed seven short-term "Quick Train" employer-led training programs, and helped more than a thousand job seekers find quality jobs. Pittsburgh Works has also initiated a quarterly series called Employer Talks!, an innovative forum for communicating with the business community on recruiting needs, best practices, and new ideas.
Pittsburgh Works streamlines and synchronizes the region's workforce and human services agencies to efficiently and effectively address the diverse needs of businesses, job seekers, funders, and other stakeholders.
