Skills-Based Practices

Oklahoma Works business services

Oklahoma Works has partnered with Skillful and OKHR to bring the Skillful Talent Series to Oklahoma. The Skillful Talent Series teaches employers skills-based practices to help fill positions with the right candidate faster and remove barriers to employment for jobseekers, including justice-involved, individuals lacking work experience, and those looking to change careers.

Nearly 70% of Americans do not have a college degree but have transferable skills and competencies needed for success. The skills-based practices initiative allows these jobseekers to get good jobs based on the skills they have or the skills they can learn – creating new opportunities for success in the digital era.
