On August 22, 2018, from 1:00 -2:30pm (ET), Anthony Featherstone, KRA Director of Workforce Operations, and Sylvelt Walker, KRA Education & Business Services Manager, DC TANF Employment Program, will serve as panelists for the OFA Peer TA Webinar on Developing Stable Employer Partnerships.
Recognizing that strong partnerships between TANF programs and employers can lead to better long-term employment outcomes for participants, the Webinar will stress that through partnering with employers, TANF programs gain direct access to information about potential and existing job openings, current occupational and skill needs, and anticipated changes within the organization that may impact jobs.
Featherstone and Walker will provide an overview, including lessons learned and effective strategies, of how KRA forges and sustains long-term partnerships with employers, developing both subsidized and unsubsidized training and work-experience opportunities that expand TANF-recipient options for stable employment and self-sufficiency.
On the importance of this Webinar to effective TANF-program operations, Featherstone commented, “We know that strategic employer partnerships are vital to providing effective job- readiness services and employment opportunities for TANF customers—and we are glad to be able to showcase several of our best practices and employer partnerships developed to support those we serve.”
