Overview

Brief Program Summary: The Workforce Investment Act (WIOA) of 1998 established the American Job Centers (one-stop career centers) to provide job matching and support under one roof. All Indiana American Job Centers have been coined by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development as WorkOne Centers–WorkOne Indy locally. WorkOne Indy is managed by EmployIndy’s Career Services team but frontline services are provided by service provider, Eckerd. WorkOne Indy, often called “the re-employment office,” provides connectivity between unemployed and underemployed job seekers and employers, serves workers dislocated by layoffs and changing industry needs, and provides informative career navigation and connection to local resources for advancing a promising career.
Success Metrics: EmployIndy measures the effectiveness of this program by calculating the total number of residents served at WorkOne Indy, connected to career services, enrolled in training, and the number of individuals who utilize computers onsite. We serve approximately 40,000 participants a year, but that number may be duplicated.
