Governor Stitt Launches Workforce Transformation Task Force

Governor Kevin Stitt today signed Executive Order 2023-02, creating the Workforce Transformation Task Force. The taskforce will focus on designing a new workforce delivery system in Oklahoma, by consolidating state workforce resources through creating a single entity responsible for workforce development.

“Oklahoma’s workforce must keep pace with the growing number of businesses expanding in and relocating to the state,” said Governor Stitt. “This Workforce Transformation Task Force is a good first step to help us maximize our full potential and provide a workforce that can meet the needs of employers.”

“Workforce is the number one challenge facing businesses in our state. We need to get more Oklahomans career-ready to address our immediate needs, while also building a pipeline to educate and train the future workforce,” said State Chamber President and CEO Chad Warmington.
