Smart Data and Smart Workforce Development Lead to Better Outcomes

The new Virginia Career Works Dashboard helps policymakers and the public better understand the workforce system and labor conditions in the state.
  1. Workforce Data Trust: Enabling the entire technology ecosystem is the Workforce Data Trust, a Virginia-owned, open-source software solution implemented in partnership with its developer, BrightHive. The data trust allows workforce system partners to securely and responsibly link their data to enhance their impact, empower data-driven decision making, and increase equity of opportunity.
  2. The Virginia Career Works Referral Portal: This web application will allow Virginians to explore a full spectrum of government services through an easy-to-use, self-directed software application. By gathering barrier-to-employment and need data in a unified application before making referrals to specific programs, they will dramatically streamline enrollment processes, reducing duplicative data entry for customers and staff.
  3. Two distinct performance dashboards: Virginia Career Works Dashboard: To help a broader audience understand the workforce system and labor conditions, Virginia stood up the Governor’s Workforce Dashboard using Apache Superset. The use of open-source technology in this area resulted in an estimated cost savings of more than 94% over traditional government approaches. Internal Performance Dashboard: For the secure operational reports used by frontline staff, field managers, and agency leadership, they are using Tableau.

“This strategic investment in our workforce technology infrastructure puts the Commonwealth in a stronger position to help Virginians get back on their feet and overcome these unprecedented challenges.”

- Governor Ralph Northam
