Headline: CareerSource Pasco Hernando Helps Return nearly $51 Million Back into the Community through Workforce Programs.

 Dade City, Florida- During the 2016/2017 program year, CareerSource Pasco Hernando had expended nearly $6.2 million on 4 programs in order to assist the local labor market. The investment returned nearly $51 million to the two county region, measured by payroll gains. Each fiscal year CareerSource Pasco Hernando encourages local economic growth by expending several million dollars of federal revenue, as it provides labor exchange and training programs to the region. CareerSource Pasco Hernando conducted a data analysis and summary to gauge the labor exchange return on investment (ROI). In determining the ROI for the 2016/2017 fiscal year, a direct approach with two guidelines measured only wage gains and benefits saved, while keeping all assumptions in the conservative realm. The method led to a $8.18 return back into the local economy for each dollar expended.
The programs have impacted the local community by creating greater local economic growth, and have provided economic stability to local residents of Pasco and Hernando counties. CareerSource Pasco Hernando provided programs which allowed participants to gain confidence in the workforce, which ultimately leads to a successful financial future.  The skills participants have gained will remain intangible, and the benefits which will affect future generations and future local economic growth will be immeasurable.
