Happy 5th Anniversary to WorkforceGPS!

Happy 5th AnniversaryWe at WorkforceGPS are celebrating our Fifth Anniversary this month! The purpose of WorkforceGPS—an online technical assistance website that helps build the capacity of America's public workforce investment system—is more important than ever. Over the past five years, we have created and hosted hundreds of useful webinars and posted other training resources, including promising practices, and relevant evidence-based research, all with the goal of giving you the tools you need to assist you in doing your job.

The WorkforceGPS website has been especially instrumental this past year during the COVID pandemic in delivering timely webinars to thousands of you in the public workforce system as you worked remotely and in-person to assist individuals and businesses get through the COVID crisis and back on the road to recovery.

In the five years of WorkforceGPS, user accounts have grown by over 135% to nearly 100,000 users! This growth in users is due, in part, to the increased number of hot topic webinars and WFGPS Chartrelated content that’s been posted, especially in 2020. Here are some impressive WorkforceGPS statistics from the past year:

  • The number of webinars has increased by over 25%. Check them out!
  • The number of attendees for webinars increased by over 150%.
  • We posted 50% more content in 2020 than in 2019 and now host over 35 Communities of Practice. See what you may have missed! 
  • The number of pageviews on the site was 78% higher this past year than last year.

In addition, we added a new feature to make WorkforceGPS even more useful to you: Custom Email Alerts. See how to create your own custom alert here!  

We look forward to continuing to provide you with informational webinars, best practices, and helpful resources that assist you in doing your job. Thank you for your continued interest and support and let us know how we can be of additional assistance by sending us an email at support@workforcegps.org.

One-Stop Partnership Case Studies

American Job Centers are always looking for ways to bring workforce partners together to better leverage staff and funding and provide better services to your employer and job seeker customers. A new series, One Stop Partnership Case Studies: Exploring How and Why Local Partners Come Together, uses case studies to tell the story of how partners in five different local areas integrated key elements of planning and operations to improve customer satisfaction and outcomes. The studies also include some advice for taking what these areas did and replicating it in your American Job Center.
