WDC health-care sector work highlighted in national GAO report

The WDC’s health-care efforts were included in a Government Accountability Office study of 14 effective collaborations between workforce boards and employers, released in February 2012.

Read the report Innovative Collaborations between Workforce Boards and Employers Helped Meet Local Needs: Read the whole report (Seattle section begins on page 66) or see the one-page summary.

The GAO visited Seattle in May 2011 to gather information, talking with staff and partners in our numerous health-care partnerships among private-sector employers, colleges, community organizations, unions and more.

As a result of the report, the Senate Employment and Workplace Safety subcommittee invited WDC CEO Marlena Sessions along with three other the highlighted programs to testify in a hearing on Feb. 16. Learn more about the hearing…

In contrast to the GAO’s report a year ago on duplication and overlapping between workforce programs, this report shows the effectiveness and efficiency of collaborations led by the public workforce system.
