Georgia Work Ready Program

Georgia Work Ready is transforming our state’s workforce into our number one competitive advantage. By ensuring Georgia workers have the best skills and training opportunities, we can guarantee businesses have the talent they need to succeed today and the resources they need to meet future challenges. Work Ready ensures that companies can more reliably match the right people with the right jobs.
