Each WorkSource is committed to being a community resource and providing excellent customer service.

Labor Market and Business Employment Needs

PacMtn is a hub for gathering and disseminating information about the area’s labor market and business employment needs. We convene groups of businesses and partners to guide collaborations with training providers and fund innovative solutions for today’s workforce challenges.

Creating Pipelines

By building strategic alliances and designing innovative workforce solutions, we are creating a pipeline of skilled and talented workers prepared to meet the needs of local employers and the industries of tomorrow. Targeted employment services help job seekers explore career pathways, update skills, and gain work-related training – increasing employability, retention, and long-term earning potential. All of these efforts culminate into an integrated system that supports regional employers by supplying them with the skilled workers.

Regional WIOA Administrator

In 2014, President Barack Obama signed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) into law as the first major reform of the public workforce system in 15 years. This law creates a more streamlined workforce training and employment delivery system that seeks to increase business prosperity by supplying highly-skilled workers. The focus on business, industry, and the health of our local economy will promote economic success for individuals and our communities. At the local level, PacMtn directs program activities driven by WIOA funding.
