According to WorkforceGPS, a site sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, "the way we provide services and assistance may look very different from now on....The keys to success will be flexibility and forward thinking in the way we serve our customers." 

WorkforceGPS is giving workforce professionals technical assistance and resources to connect individuals to available jobs and training.  As a starting place, they have organized Pathway to Recovery resources into the following categories: Job Seeker and Business Customer Service Delivery, Labor Market Information, Partnerships & Planning, and System Infrastructure & Capacity. Of special interest: a
