Welcome to the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development web portal. The Baker Administration is committed to building upon our successes in creating jobs and assisting residents in finding employment opportunities in every community within the Commonwealth. In order for Massachusetts to compete in a 21st Century global economy, our labor force must reflect the growing needs of employers to fill the skilled jobs of tomorrow. Focusing on the chronically unemployed and underemployed and developing an agenda to grow employment and workforce training opportunities in urban areas and Gateway Cities are just two ways to help expand the labor force. Governor Baker believes it is critical to strengthen the connection between the Commonwealth’s safety net—the Unemployment Insurance program and the state’s network of career centers to help increase access to the multitude of free services the state offers anyone who wants to work.
This web portal is designed to make it easier for you to find the information you need from us and from the agencies we oversee. Please explore our website to learn about our programs and services. In addition, you will find information on workplace safety, workers’ compensation, workforce training grants, and economic data that offers detailed information about the state’s labor markets, unemployment figures, and job vacancy reports.
