CareerSource Florida Annual Report

As an organization and as a statewide network, CareerSource Florida advanced a series of ongoing and new initiatives over this past year to enhance and expand our work to help Floridians achieve prosperity.

Skills Gap and Job Vacancy Survey

The Skills Gap and Job Vacancy Survey of Florida employers provides a snapshot of skills needed, and which industries have the greatest need for talent. CareerSource Florida commissioned the research to drive data-informed decisions to help shape future education and workforce development strategies and investment.

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Unified Plan

The federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) guides states in achieving and maintaining an integrated, outcome-oriented public workforce system that links diverse talent to businesses. This is accomplished through customer-driven workforce solutions and excellent customer service that support strong regional economies.

Gig Economy Research

CareerSource Florida commissioned a comprehensive study on the potential impacts of the gig economy on Florida’s workforce system. This research led to the creation of the Gig Economy Resource Guide, an interactive toolkit that answers key questions and directs gig workers and employers to helpful resources to help navigate the gig economy and the Gig Economy Dashboard, a tool that summarizes data from national sources including the U.S. Census Bureau and the Internal Revenue Service. The dashboard provides an analysis of the pre-pandemic growth of gig work in Florida by county and industry throughout the state.
