Connecting Residents with Jobs Along the Atlanta BeltLine
The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is bringing together leaders from public, private, non-profit, educational, and community organizations to facilitate a new model of workforce development that will result in better connections for the employers and the residents living, or desiring to live, along the Atlanta BeltLine corridor. This collaborative effort will help lower costs associated with hiring and training, reduce employee turnover, ensure Atlanta BeltLine residents have requisite job skills and access to economic opportunities, and mitigate the environmental impacts associated with long automobile commutes.
About Workforce Partnerships
Workforce Partnerships create long-term relationships between employers, job seekers, and service providers by offering job training and career support for industry sectors that are critical to local economies. Because employers actively engage in the creation and evolution of the training programs, the Workforce Partnership model is one of the most successful ways for low- and moderate-income individuals to acquire credentials, find successful job placements, and achieve career advancement.
Key functions of Workforce Partnerships include:
- Utilizing public and private funds to connect multiple institutions seeking common goals
- Providing or brokering services to help jobseekers and employees advance their objectives
- Testing, implementing and disseminating innovative new approaches
- Catalyzing improvements in public systems and business employment practices to better address the needs of the unemployed and underemployed
