WIET - About Us

About Ohio Workforce Inventory of Education and Training (WIET) System

The Office of Workforce Development provides information and tools to Ohio's workforce system. We interpret federal and state law and serve as primary policy-makers for workforce programs. The office administers federal programs that create a comprehensive statewide workforce system of employment services; hiring support and tax credits; and labor market information to employers and workers.

We support Ohio's Workforce Investment Boards in operating OhioMeansJobs Centers, a single location to access employment and supportive services from federal, state, and local partners.

We partner with the Ohio Department of Higher Education, Ohio Development Services Agency, the Governor’s Office and the U.S. Department of Labor. Working together, we can maximize our state and federal resources to advance our workforce and our economy.

Educational institutions, approved by a local Workforce Investment Board (WIB) and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, are eligible to receive Individual Training Account (ITA) funds under the Workforce Investment Act.
