JACKSONвЂ”The State of Mississippi has submitted its Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) plan for review to the U.S. Department of Labor and is the first state in the nation to do so. Unique to each state, the WIOA plans are designed to strengthen the national workforce by bringing all stakeholders together at the state-level to create an integrated workforce system.
вЂњThe Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act plan we have submitted will improve MississippiвЂ™s existing workforce system by making the entire process more streamlined for everyone involved,вЂќ Gov. Phil Bryant said. вЂњBy bringing all the relevant state agencies and workforce stakeholders together during this process we have submitted a plan that will close the middle-skill job gap and increase workforce participation rates. This will help Mississippi employers fill openings and also show prospective companies looking to locate in Mississippi that we are committed to a strong workforce and are open for business.вЂќ
At the request of Gov. Bryant, the process of getting MississippiвЂ™s Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act plan submitted to the U.S. Department of Labor was headed up by the State Workforce Investment Board with input from the public, business community, workforce stakeholders, and educational institutions.
вЂњThis workforce plan represents a significant opportunity for Mississippi to pull together all our stakeholders in workforce development and work in ways that havenвЂ™t been seen in the past,вЂќ Chair of the State Workforce Investment Board Jay Moon said. вЂњThe performance measures that are in the Mississippi WIOA plan will also allow us to monitor and improve our process as we move forward. This will help us to make sure we are always advancing our outcomes and utilizing our resources in the best possible manner. I thank everyone that was involved in the development of the plan and for their valuable input.вЂќ
Objectives of the Mississippi WIOA plan include:
- Strategic vision among all workforce stakeholders
- Close the middle-skill job gap
- Increase workforce participation rates
- To be a vehicle for economic development by connecting job seekers in real-time with economic opportunities
- To meet the recruitment needs of current and prospective businesses
