The Loudoun Workforce Resource Center has been certified as a Virginia Career Works One-Stop Affiliate Center site by the Virginia Board of Workforce Development (VBWD). The VBWD sets policies and oversees operations of the U.S. Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act at job centers throughout the state.
The One-Stop Affiliate Center certification demonstrates that the Loudoun Workforce Resource Center delivers high quality employment services by meeting or exceeding all mandates from the VBWD and embracing continuous quality improvement to be responsive to the needs of job seekers and employers. The certification also demonstrates how the center collaborates with other state agencies and local nonprofits to ensure seamless career services without duplication of effort.
To ensure an affiliate center is a high performing and quality site, the VBWD requires a rigorous certification process, which includes individual staff interviews, a large group interview with staff and partners and a job seeker focus group.
“We are extremely pleased to be recognized for our ongoing commitment to workforce excellence in Loudoun County,” said Loudoun County Department of Family Services Director Ina Fernández. “We are especially appreciative of our staff, volunteers and workforce partners who have continued to provide our community with exceptional career services, despite the pandemic-related challenges of this past year.”
