Webinar: Using the Online Work Readiness Assessment (OWRA) Tool to Address Significant Barriers to Employment

The cumulative chronic stress and trauma associated with living in poverty can increase someone’s risk of low educational attainment, unemployment, family instability, substance abuse, mental illness, and criminal activity. The latter risks can pose significant barriers to long-term employment and sustainable self-sufficiency. Safety net programs, like Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), can play a critical role in supporting low-income families to reduce these risks. By integrating the Online Work Readiness Assessment (OWRA) tool within a comprehensive service delivery approach, organizations have successfully identified and addressed significant barriers to employment. In this facilitated webinar, presenters will share how their organization uses Online Work Readiness Assessment (OWRA) tool to successfully support customers experiencing significant barriers to employment by connecting customers to a variety of resources and services, as well as employment and training opportunities that are tailored to the unique needs of the individual. By sharing their strategies and lessons learned, other programs can gain insight into how to more effectively serve customers facing significant barriers to employment and lead them toward sustainable self-sufficiency.
