Workforce

Verified identity gets workers back on the job faster

Whether an economy is strong or struggling, Americans who are out of work often contend with barriers – including matching their skills with in-demand needs, and connecting with the right opportunities. States can activate their workforces through verified digital credentials that streamline services, training, and reemployment.

Moments of transformation

People across the United States are experiencing unparalleled unemployment.

The COVID-19 pandemic has overwhelmed workforce agencies, crashing legacy systems and straining budgets.

Government agencies struggle to understand the skill-set and training needs of their workforce.

Duplicative or ineffective employment and training services lead to wasteful administrative costs arising.

Businesses and economies are hindered by a supply shortage of labor that qualifies for middle-skills employment (positions that need more training than high school but less than a 4-year degree).
