Happy 2019!

2020 is around the corner, but before we welcome the new year, let’s take a moment to reflect on 2019.  Over the course of 12 months, WorkforceGPS has highlighted successful practices in the monthly newsletter and launched a new site design.  Some of the improvements included:

  • Easier navigation and search for the Member Directory;
  • Improved and streamlined search that allows you to sort results by title, relevance, newness, or popularity, and customized topic filters; and
  • A concise summary of each product you search, making it easier to find just the resource you need.

In 2019 we presented content on specific hot topic areas spanning the service delivery spectrum from services in rural areas to resources to work-based learning, to resources to assist Workforce Development Boards, entrepreneurship, and licensing and credentialing.  Here is a recap of the monthly themes that we highlighted in 2019.

Below is a summary of the most-read resources from 2019’s monthly newsletters.  We look forward to sharing new content in 2020.

Happy Holidays!
