Resource Partnership Team
Who We Are
The Resource Partnership Team is a collaborative effort to develop a seamless system that provides business services, employment, and training opportunities to the unemployed and underemployed. We aim to create a network of services that will streamline processes and facilitate sustainable employment that enhances the economic development of the region by developing career pathways to success for individuals and talent pipelines for our business community.
What We Do
Our goal is to be recognized by the business community as the source for recruiting employable candidates and building the workforce to answer the needs of the emerging economy.
The Partnership Team is focused around task force groups, which develop and implement projects related to the improvement of our workforce system. These task forces are designed to provide practical solutions to challenges. Currently, we have created a task force around these five areas:
- Partnership Events
- Service Integration/Process Improvement
- Servicing Clients with Barriers to Employment (i.e. Criminal backgrounds, mature workers, etc.)
- Digital Divide (Issues around access to and the ability to use technology in both careers and job search) This project is an outgrowth of research conducted by VCU which we decided to explore, develop and implement a solution for within our region.
The Resource Partnership Team member organizations offer an array of services and programs in the Capital Region. To see a complete listing please download the Resource Partnership Team Service Matrix.
