Operation Allies Welcome Aboard- Employer Webinar

DWD is honored to be a part of Operation Allies Welcome! Former Commissioner Payne saw the immediate need for the agency to get involved as employment is one of the key factors for a family to thrive and be self-sufficient. We know how important a talented workforce is to the success of your organization and communities across Indiana. By connecting and engaging, strong, successful partnerships are created! At this point, all 7200 Afghan guests that called Camp Atterbury home have now resettled across the United States. We are excited to welcome 700 new Hoosiers to our communities. Please watch our informational webinar for an overview of traditional resettlement compared to this historic effort from our partners at Exodus.

Connect with your local Workone Business Services team with job descriptions and ongoing recruitment efforts. To be a part of a monthly meeting to discuss your experience employing our new neighbors or to learn best practices as you begin to hire this talent, please reach out to Holly Meyer HMeyer@dwd.IN.gov Thank you!

Employability Skills Benchmarks

The term “employability skills” applies to those skills previously called “soft” skills or workplace-ready skills.  Employability skills are those that all employers find necessary in order to find and sustain employment.  The skills within these Employability Skills Benchmarks have been vetted by Hoosier employers, and allow Hoosier educational and training providers to have a commonly understood set of skills that students should seek to demonstrate.
