The coronavirus pandemic has caused the displacement of many Ohio workers, creating a tough situation for the individuals and their families as well as the state’s unemployment resources. To assist with recovery efforts, JobsOhio in conjunction with the Offices of Job and Family Services, Ohio Workforce Transformation, and Development Services Agency, have joined together a statewide coalition of partners to launch an innovative initiative called Ohio to Work.
Ohio To Work helps displaced and at-risk workers return to work as soon as possible or pursue reskilling opportunities for in-demand jobs. The program supports equity and inclusion by focusing on diverse workers and ensuring they are aware of the career opportunities and other services through the Ohio To Work partners.
The initiative started as a pilot in Greater Cleveland and has since expanded its existing array of career support services for job seekers in major cities and regions across the state.
