Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) Secretary Jennifer Berrier today visited the Philadelphia OIC, a workforce development and job-training center with a decades-long history of preparing Philadelphians for advancement into family-sustaining careers.

The OIC is one of many partners in the Philadelphia Region Hospitality and Entertainment Industry Partnership to invest in the region’s hotel and restaurant workforce – a project supported by the Wolf Administration’s PAsmart initiative.

The partnership was recently awarded a $175,000 Industry Partnership grant from L&I and will use its grant funding for various activities related to workforce development, including training, recruiting, marketing, supportive services, and contracting. Statewide, the department awarded nearly $4.8 million to 26 industry partnerships with innovative plans to meet local and regional workforce needs.
