Current Narrative:

(2c.) Coordination, Alignment and Provision of Services to Individuals
Customer-focused services to individuals is a priority for the Alabama Workforce System. Enhanced services to individuals have and are occurring by providing major media marketing such as TV Job Bank programs, Career and Job Fairs in rural high employment areas and Hiring Fairs in labor shortage areas. The State is also looking at providing a website portal that will give any individual how to access partner services for Workforce or supportive services in a few mouse clicks. The Alabama Workforce Development Board and Alabama’s Workforce Council are empathic that services to individuals are provided in an effective, efficient and responsive manner. A “process flow” that identifies and visually communicates how individuals pass through the various processes will be developed. Based on where the individual enters the process they and each partner will know where the individual should go next and with what information or actions are required at each step. All partner employees will be trained to assist individuals on the specific steps required and with no duplication of efforts by the individual. The main goal is a “user friendly” process and experience through each step and that the individual receives the needed and necessary assistance.
