 Nevada's Workforce Investment System

The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 provided the framework for states to build workforce investment systems that would vastly improve the delivery of employment services to the community. The goal  of the system  is to provide workforce investment activities through statewide and local workforce investment systems that increase the employment, retention, and earnings of participants, and increase occupational skill attainment by participants. As a result, the initiatives would improve the quality of the workforce, reduce welfare dependency, and enhance the productivity and competitiveness of Nevada.

Under the act, the Governor's Workforce Investment Board, also known as the State Workforce Investment Board (SWIB) was established. The mission of the Governorís Workforce Investment Board is to bring Nevada business and workers together to shape strategies that best meet workforce needs in order to foster a healthy and growing economy in the state. 

To fulfill this mission, Board members and staff work together to:

Promote a system of workforce development that responds to the lifelong learning  needs of Nevadaís workforce;

Advise the Governor and Legislature on workforce development policy;

Encourage public/private partnerships and facilitate innovations in workforce  development policy and practices; and

Ensure a quality workforce system by evaluating results and supporting high standards and continuous improvement.

Local Workforce Investment Boards
The act also called for the establishment of local workforce investment boards to set policy for the portion of the statewide workforce investment system within local areas. Nevada has two local workforce investment boards, the
Southern Nevada Workforce Investment Board and the Northern Nevada Board, called Nevadaworks. These boards are responsible for establishing One-Stop Employment Service locations, where job seekers and employers can obtain services under one roof.
