Workforce Education
Pathways to Workforce Readiness Newsletter June 2009
Virginia SHRM State Council is dedicated to preparing Virginians for the workforce through strategic alliances with business, education and government officials.

VASHRM continues to focus on promoting partnerships between businesses, government and educational institutions to develop and maintain pathways to meet the workforce demands in Virginia.

One of our efforts includes the creation of a newsletter focusing EXCLUSIVELY on workforce readiness in Virginia.

We gathered information from the Governor’s office, including a letter from the Governor, Goodwill Industries, the Virginia Community College System (VCCS), the Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA) and Virginia SHRM Chapters.

Also, included is a summary of the results from the Labor Readiness Study conducted by Goodwill Industries in partnership with VASHRM.
