BEST PRACTICE RESOURCES
As COVID-19 reshapes the way people live and work, it is critical for workforce practitioners to consider new perspectives and solutions and engage in continuous peer-to-peer sharing to ensure that individual jobseekers, workers, and employers have the resources they need to succeed in a transformed economy. To fulfill this need, the WDC Best Practices and Communications Committee regularly solicits best practices from WDC members and periodically holds best practice sharing sessions at meetings and convenings throughout the year. Below please find several slideshows featuring recently submitted best practices from WDC members.
