‘First-of-Its-Kind’ Hub Announced to Boost Knowledge of States’ Workforce Technology Systems



For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON – The National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) announced a new tool developed by its Workforce Information Technology Support Center (Workforce ITSC) that is a first-of-its-kind hub of information on technology systems behind state workforce systems.

This new tool is aimed at educating state workforce agency personnel on technologies used at the state level, expanding understanding of market availability, encouraging further communication and collaboration, and informing purchase and build decisions.

“This tool gives our members, the state workforce agencies, insights into real-time workforce technology solutions that are being used across the country,” said NASWA Executive Director Scott B. Sanders. “Our organization is all about sharing and collaborating on promising practices and proven solutions in the workforce system. The State Workforce Technology Profiles tool not only promotes that but is the first-of-its-kind and an example of the power of what can happen when states join forces to innovate.”

The tool currently has created workforce technology profiles for 32 states. For more information or to access the Workforce ITSC State Workforce Technology Profiles tool, visit https://www.naswa.org/witsc/state-technology-profiles.
