At the center of our Career Services is the Indiana DWD’s designation of EmployIndy as the regional operator to maintain oversight of the functions of WorkOne services in Marion County. There are two WorkOne Indy locations:
In addition to these locations, EmployIndy has positioned WorkOne Indy to have a broader reach by partnering with other organizations to house staff on a regular basis, designated as WorkOne Indy Proximity Points. Currently these access points include seven Indianapolis Public Library branches and the Ivy Tech Indianapolis Campus, with ongoing development of partnerships to expand in other areas of Indy.
Positioning career navigators in neighborhood locations offers Indy residents – particularly those in our target impact areas – a more convenient opportunity to access services and referrals. Additionally, WorkOne Indy clients have multiple staff members assigned to them to ensure the support they need is always available, including resource coordinators who can help with barriers such as housing, child care, interview clothing, and more.
EmployIndy also works with community organizations, training/education providers, and city partners to share information including:
- Workforce and employer data/trends
- Best practices
- Training Opportunities
- Funding and reimbursement opportunities
- Policy changes
- Grant opportunities
Additionally, EmployIndy oversees administration of CDBG grants in Indianapolis, administers the Employ Up program funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, and deals extensively with youth workforce development initiatives around central Indiana.
