Using Social Media to Improve State Reemployment Services for Dislocated Workers

The Heldrich Center is working with the National Association of State Workforce Agencies to provide technical assistance and subject matter expertise to three states (Minnesota, New York, and Idaho) who are recipients of demonstration funding to pilot a social media component as part of a larger initiative to provide stronger and more integrated reemployment services to Unemployment Insurance claimants through the workforce system. The Heldrich Center is participating in a three-day launch meeting with the states, providing facilitation and targeted training to the states in social media as well as ongoing technical assistance in the use of social media strategies, tools and/or applications that can be potentially used in the workforce development/reemployment areas during the course of the demonstration. (Funded by the National Association of State Workforce Agencies through a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration)
