We received insightful information regarding the state of South Florida's workforce from our last speaker, Rick Beasley, Executive Director, South Florida Workforce.
South Florida Workforce's core purpose is to improve the quality of life through a workforce well equipped to meet industry demand. South Florida Workforce is responsible for initiating state and federally funded workforce development programs in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. They assist employers and job seekers with employment services, labor market information, and training for economically disadvantaged adults, youth, dislocated workers, individuals transitioning from welfare to work, and refugees.
While promoting the advancement of underutilized workers, the South Florida Workforce stimulates the labor market by implementing policies such as business incentives, and provides valuable resources to South Florida's diverse community.
