Governor Kasich leads workforce group's rebranding
The name may be different, but their mission remains the same. OhioMeansJobs Cincinnati-Hamilton County is the new name of the One Stop job center located at 1916 Central Parkway in Cincinnati. All One Stops in Ohio are being rebranded under OhioMeansJobs, which is also the name of the state’s resource-rich website for job seekers and employers.
The rebranding, which was led by Gov. John Kasich’s Office of Workforce Transformation, will help the public identify more easily the programs and resources that are funded through the Workforce Investment Act, which, for job seekers, include everything from help with job searches and resume writing, to skills assessments and retraining. Services for employers include job candidate screening, and hiring and job fairs.
“A common name makes it easier to figure out what these job centers offer and why they play an important role in the local economy,” said Sherry Kelley Marshall, President/CEO of the Southwest Ohio Region Workforce Investment Board, an affiliate of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. The rebranding is particularly helpful to employers with multiple locations throughout the state, she said. The former name of the One Stop was the SuperJobs Center.
