Welcome to Workforce Tulsa.
Workforce Tulsa fuels economic development by connecting businesses in our region with job-ready talent through public/private partnerships.
As a private-industry led board of 50 leaders from around Tulsa, Osage, Creek and Pawnee counties, the Tulsa Area Workforce Investment Board works to ensure that the workforce system - made up of employers, job seekers, trainers and educators, government agencies and non-profits - is operating as efficiently as possible so that limited resources are being utilized as effectively as possible. We know that workforce is one of the most important components of economic development for our area, and we focus on meeting the needs of industry in our market.
Shawn Gustafson first came to Workforce Tulsa in response to a job posting. With no high school diploma or GED and a felony on his record, Shawn has settled down and is trying to provide for his family. His communication with our business services team and career advisors was always courteous and prompt. He came in to our center and went through the enrollment process and was prescreened by the business services team.
Shawn also met with one of our career advisors, who suggested some revisions to the formatting of his resume. He quickly made the changes and sent the updated version. Our business services account manager then talked to the Ellsworth Construction about Shawn’s 2.5 years of heavy machine operation experience and they were very excited to meet Shawn.
Shawn filled out an application at Ellsworth’s office and then drove to the work site to interview. By the end of the interview, he was told, “I want you on my team!”
That same evening, Ellsworth Construction emailed our account manager to say how very impressed they were with Shawn and they believe they will benefit having him with their company. Shawn started his new job as a Heavy machine Operator on February 1, 2016.
