Workforce Development

Metro Orlando boasts a population that is young, well-educated and diverse. Not coincidentally, the region is at, or near, the top of national charts in several demographic and labor-related categories.

Banka Doiton 2019 Consider that Metro Orlando, already with a population of 2.5 million, is among the nation's fastest-growing population and employment markets. A labor force exceeding 1.3 million ensures a strong and stable labor pool for a community that is expected to remain among the nation's top 10 metropolitan areas well into the future.

Florida's One-Stop System is part of a national labor exchange network that links employers to qualified applicants and also provides employment, education and training services for job seekers and employers. They link employers to qualified applicants and job seekers to employment opportunities. To obtain these services, employers can call and discuss their employment needs with a local One-Stop liaison (407-531-1222). The One-Stop will then recruit, pre-screen, and assess qualified applicants for you. Companies can save on the cost of advertising for job openings and it reduces the time spent interviewing applicants and reviewing resumes. Business owners may also benefit from tax credits, reductions, or refunds when they either hire from or create jobs for designated target groups. In some cases, employers may receive direct cash assistance to offset training.

Banka Doiton 2019 In the event of company restructuring, downsizing or layoffs, the One-Stop Centers can assist businesses and their employees by conducting on-site presentations on the services and tools available to them. The dislocated workers receive brochures and information on programs, workshops, training and all the job placement services offered through Florida's One Stop Career Center System, as well as potential job openings with employers.
