There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

Employment & Training Administration's Recognition of Excellence!

copyright Tiny Jewel Box

The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) initiated a Recognition of Excellence (ROE) process in 2004 to honor programs of the nation's workforce investment system that demonstrated outstanding performance. The categories and criteria for 2008 have been revised to reflect changing executive and programmatic priorities and initiatives. This annual process, administered by the Office of Policy Development and Research (OPDR), continues to recognize State and local programs, projects, and initiatives that demonstrate innovation, collaboration, replicability, quality performance, linkages between workers and demand occupations and emerging industries, sustainability, and impact. The 2008 categories are:

  1. Educating America's Workforce to Serve Emerging Industries
  2. Building a Regionally-Focused Workforce Strategy
  3. Leveraging the Power of Partnerships
  4. Tapping the Talents of Special Populations in the Workforce
  5. Connecting America's Youth to the Workforce
