WORK Together ROC

WORK Together ROC is a Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce talent strategy initiative dedicated to strengthening the local talent pipeline.
We do this in the following ways:

Accessing Workforce Development

We serve as a convener to assess existing workforce development offerings and see where the gaps are in hiring and retaining talent. We act as a point person in workforce training and development.

Creating Employment Pipelines

An area of focus involves responding to and anticipating current and future employer needs. We do this by linking businesses with community organizations to help talent with career education and exploration, and the creation of employment opportunities.

Connecting Talent

We serve as a resource for talent to connect with employers in the Finger Lakes Region through our job board and network.

Ongoing Workforce Initiatives

The Greater Rochester region is abundant with organizations that provide a host of workforce development programs. Learn more on our Voice of Business blog below!

2021 Workforce Survey Results

In 2021, we surveyed our members and other local businesses in order to better understand talent needs and challenges in the region. The results have been used to help craft a comprehensive strategy to address today's unique workforce challenges.

Greater ROC Careers

Job seekers and employers have a variety of ways to connect through the Greater ROC Careers job board. Job seekers can search for jobs, set up alerts for matching new jobs, view featured jobs and employers. Employers can post jobs for job seekers to apply to and search for qualified candidates through resume search. Employers can also set up resume alerts to be notified when a job seeker with certain qualifications registers with the job board.

Become a Level Up Champion

A Level Up Champion is an employer that has taken the first step toward wage equity by instituting a $15 or higher starting wage within their organization. This commitment demonstrates their investment in their employees and is one way they are doing their part to promote upward mobility in the Greater Rochester Area.
