Review for JOBWORKS INC, Fort Wayne, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

JobWorks has over 20 years experience changing people’s lives and is Indiana’s largest WorkOne employment and training services provider and partner. In the early years JobWorks was established to administer Employment & Training Services under the Job Training Program Act of 1982 and has since delivered over $200 million in workforce development services.

JobWorks Inc. is a non-profit 501(c) 3 corporation committed to developing and advancing America’s workforce. Originally established in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1982 as the Fort Wayne Job Training Program, the need for expanded services and outreach came just 5 years later in 1987 resulting in a new name and a broad expansion of programs and services to meet the needs of northeast Indiana’s changing manufacturing economy. Subsequently the old Fort Wayne Job Training Program became, JobWorks Inc. This newly named and expanded organization became the gold standard for the delivery of employment and training services throughout northeast Indiana by providing on the job training, skill assessments, pre-employment testing and screening, employment counseling, customized training and education in partnership and collaboration with the business community and local economic development organizations.

Upon passage of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 JobWorks once again rose to the challenge of changing economies and community needs and re-organized itself to continue its services to communities and people. Today, JobWorks utilizes its talented and experienced team of employees to build on past successes and provide employment and training services to Workforce Boards and Regional Operators and communities in Indiana, Ohio and Southern California.

Throughout the years JobWorks has continued to change lives by providing employment and training services to broad and diverse populations through continued process and organizational improvements and expanded services in partnership with our Workforce Partners in the regions and communities we serve.
