|Subject:||Core Services for Business as recommended by the WIA State Agency Partners Table|
|Purpose:||To provide local Workforce Investment Areas with the recommendations developed and endorsed by the State Agency Partners Table concerning effective services for businesses|
|Background:||Representatives to the State Agency Partners Table have considered at length the nature of core services which should be offered under the Workforce Investment Act to the businesses of each local area. After much discussion, the Partners Table representatives summarized their conclusions and made definitive, practical recommendations regarding essential services for business.
Attached is the document produced by the State Agency Partners Table: Recommended Core Services for Business.
|Action:||Local Workforce Investment Boards should become familiar with the attached recommendations. Since these are fully endorsed at the state agency level, Local Boards should look at MOUs in the context of these recommended core business services and incorporate applicable recommendations as soon as feasible. LWIBs also should ensure that the inclusion of core business services is required for the local One Stop Operator certification. State-level certification will require inclusion of these core business services.|
