Performance measures and Vegas jobs

Performance measures are putting the spotlight on Vegas jobs.

– According to a Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) report recently issued by the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR), the state has exceeded its mandated WIOA performance measures for the 2nd quarter of 2018.

Under the Act, the state’s performance is rated on a program year with Nevada exceeding all performance measures under Titles I and III.

“WIOA has had a major impact on state employment programs, including in Nevada. I am pleased to see these latest figures, as they clearly reflect how the local workforce boards and our agency are making great strides in improving the way we do business. It is through staff’s efforts that we are strengthening our collaboration between our workforce partners and employers and ensuring the workforce system addresses the needs of businesses and workers we serve,” said DETR Director, Dr. Tiffany Tyler-Garner.

Under Nevada’s Unified State Plan, Title I of WIOA includes the Adult, Dislocated Worker and Youth Programs. Title I programs provide workforce training, professional degree and certification programs, secondary and postsecondary education programs, employment services, career counseling and planning, veteran programs, and Job Corps services for the above-mentioned groups.

“We are delighted to see that we have exceeded Nevada’s Titles I and III WIOA performance measures for the second quarter of 2018,” said Renee Olson, Administrator of the Employment Security Division. “These latest numbers reflect our commitment to creating a workforce system that improves not only our state’s economy, but also the lives of our citizens. I am extremely proud of our staff and of their dedication to the constant improvement of our services.”

Title III falls within the Wagner-Peyser Act Program and includes employment/reemployment services integrated with the delivery of other services into a one-stop framework and provides job-seekers, including unemployment insurance claimants, with referrals and application assistance for training and educational resources and programs.
