RICHMOND, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A new brand aims to unify the workforce development system in Virginia, making it easier to connect employers with the potential employees with the necessary training and credentials.

The Virginia Career Works system includes a network of state and local partners and 62 One Stop Career Centers.

"We have tremendous resources to help connect employers and job-seekers in the Commonwealth, but our research shows that many Virginians are not aware of these important programs," said Governor Terry McAuliffe in announcing the program on Monday. "We've made great strides to enhance our workforce development assets by building a demand-driven workforce system, engaging and building a skilled workforce, and activating our network. Now, it is time to put Virginia to work."
