Recognizing both the importance of improving Ohio’s workforce development system and the enormity of the challenge, in February 2012, Governor Kasich issued Executive Order 2012-02K, creating the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation (OWT) to be headed by a director reporting directly to the Governor. Acknowledging the importance of continually improving Ohio's workforce development system, in June 2015, the Governor formally continued the OWT with the issuance of Executive Order 2015-08K.
The Governor also established the Governor's Executive Workforce Board, comprised of leaders in business, education, non-profit, and labor, as well as four appointed state legislators, to guide the OWT's work and ensure that business needs are at the forefront of improvements made to the workforce system.
