KANSASWORKS is the brand name for the statewide,
public workforce system established through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
HOW IT WORKS
Kansas is Separated Into 5 Local Areas
Each area has a local workforce development board and one-stop operator responsible for Workforce Center operations. The Kansas Department of Commerce Workforce Services Division administers state-level programs and the state workforce board— the KANSASWORKS State Board.
What is the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act?
In July of 2014, President Barack Obama signed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) into law on July 22, 2014.
What does KANSASWORKS offer?
The Kansas Department of Commerce Workforce Services Division requested assistance with evaluation of entry services delivered at workforce centers across Kansas. Located in communities across the state, Kansas Workforce Centers serve more than 176,000 customers a year. These centers experience a constant management challenge to effectively serve this volume of clients and meet the unique employment needs of each individual. Wichita State University developed a study to design a “secret shoppers” appraisal tool, to conduct an assessment in nine workforce centers. Use the buttons below to view the Results and analysis.
The KANSASWORKS State Board is an equal opportunity employer/program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities. Any individual with a disability may request accommodations by emailing email@example.com, TDD 711 or 1-800-766-3777. Requests should be made at least (5) working days in advance of the event.
