Welcome to Workforce Tulsa.
Workforce Tulsa fuels economic development by creating relationships that benefit employers and job seekers by placing talent today, while preparing individuals for the jobs of tomorrow.
As a private-industry led board of leaders from Tulsa, Osage, Creek, and Pawnee counties, the Tulsa Area Workforce Development Board works to ensure that the workforce system - made up of employers, job seekers, trainers and educators, government agencies and non-profits - is operating as efficiently as possible so that limited resources are being utilized as effectively as possible. We know that workforce is one of the most important components of economic development for our area, and we focus on meeting the needs of industry in our market.
Vickie was working as an Area Manager for an area Subway who was justice involved at the time she enrolled to become a Workforce Tulsa participant. Her Workforce Tulsa Career Navigator, Scott, worked with her and utilized assessment tools to help Vickie narrow down her interests to focus on pursuing a career in the Logistics and Transportation Industry. Vickie tested well in math, reading, and language skills, so Scott was confident that she was prepared to be successful with occupational skills training. Scott helped make sure that the process of enrolling into school was smooth and simple for Vickie. She said that this allowed her see a light at the end of the tunnel and that it seemed to be getting closer and closer through each step as Scott guided her. In addition to her occupational training, Vickie took advantage of Workforce Tulsa’s “Resume Writing” workshop which helped her learn how to convey her worth to prospective employers. Vickie said that the workshop facilitator, Angela, made her believe in herself again and that she was better than her mistakes. After Vickie completed her schooling, one of Workforce Tulsa’s Business Services Team members, Jessica, identified companies that would accept Vickie’s past and inexperience in the field in which she had just received her license. Vickie said, “I felt like I was a boxer and Jessica was in my corner fighting for me and keeping me going when I was ready to give up.” Vickie has earned her Class A Commercial Driver’s License and obtained full-time employment with Carolina Cargo, earning $12.50/hr. as a truck driver. She says that she is grateful for the team at Workforce Tulsa who helped her change her life forever because of their dedication.
