WorkforceGPS' second birthday has come and gone, and the summer is nearly here--look forward to some beach reads comin' at you in the near future. However, this month, the WorkforceGPS Team would like to re-introduce you to our homepage, tell you a little more about our Older Worker Community (since May is Older Worker Month), and share with you some of our latest Innovations in Action.
WorkforceGPS Spotlight: The WorkforceGPS Homepage
Although much of the WorkforceGPS homepage remains the same, we have recently implemented a small but significant change to the top-level navigation—
We have combined Communities of Practice and Collections into a new “Communities” tab. All of our communities are now in a single drop-down list in alphabetical order. Rest assured, the elements within individual communities have not changed; we simply wanted to make it easier for our users to find the specific site you’re looking for. This is the first of a few changes to the interface that we will be making this year to simplify navigation and improve your experience.
Stay tuned for more on that, but for now, remember:
On the WorkforceGPS homepage, we currently make use of the following avenues to highlight content:
- Featured Content
Features that automatically feed into the homepage from different pages on the site include:
- Upcoming Events
- New and Trending Resources
You can also Browse Site By or Search from the homepage of WorkforceGPS and, as always, log in or, if you are new to our site, create an account. And, as always, feel free to use the announcement banner to tell us how we’re doing!
May: Older Worker Month
May is Older Worker Month, and WorkforceGPS houses a Community of Practice designed just for this population: Older Workers.
This community is an online hub to share resources, news, and emerging practices about the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). The site is designed to facilitate peer-to-peer communication among SCSEP grantees and sub-grantees, Federal Project Officers, and the national program office.

Innovations in Action
As a reminder, Innovations in Action are brief summaries of promising practices from across the public workforce system. These innovations are noteworthy because they represent timely, real-world examples of practitioners finding creative solutions to the challenges they face in helping to improve work opportunities for Americans.
Last month, we posted four Innovations in Action; click on them for more information.
That’s all for May.
Stay dry—those April showers are just now making their way to us here in Washington, DC!
