Workforce Wednesday: New Video Series Highlights Diverse Department Offerings

With “workforce” in the name, most people can guess that the Utah Department of Workforce Services has something to do with employment. And of course we do —one of our main areas of focus is connecting great workers with great employers. However, the name doesn’t make it obvious that the department also works with refugees, veterans, affordable housing, homelessness, temporary assistance for families in need, unemployment insurance, child care and more.

Such a wide range of programs and services can be difficult to keep track of, so today we launched a video series about the unique divisions within Workforce Services.

Each short video introduces viewers to the unique services the division offers to Utahns, and makes it easier to understand everything Workforce Services does, beyond just workforce.

The first three videos, focusing on the Eligibility Services, Unemployment Insurance and Workforce Development divisions, are now available on YouTube. Videos highlighting our other divisions will be released in the coming weeks.

*Every Wednesday, Workforce Services takes a special look at issues or initiatives that affect Utah's workforce. Hop on Twitter to follow the latest innovations that help Utahns take their careers to the next level: #WorkforceWednesday
