Essential businesses who are looking to expand their workforce during the COVID-19 crisis and individuals who are healthy and looking for work employers are encouraged to use the RochesterWorks system, which may be accessed at www.monroecounty.gov/works.
Both businesses and job seekers should visit www.monroecounty.gov/works to post and explore job opportunities. Residents with limited internet access are encouraged to call RochesterWorks at (585) 258-3500.
“During a time when we’re asking the vast majority of our residents to stay home and stop the spread of the virus, certain essential businesses must ramp up their operations to meet the needs of our community,” said Monroe County Executive Adam Bello. “This centralized resource through RochesterWorks will serve to connect those businesses with our healthy workforce. Just as we centralize emergency response efforts in our county, I am asking we do the same regarding our labor supply and demand during this emergency.”
Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bob Duffy said, “This public health crisis has impacted business in immeasurable ways. Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce is working to support business and keep people employed to the greatest extent possible while also heeding the guidance of our federal, state, and local leaders. Rochester Chamber plans to assist Monroe County in any way it can to connect businesses that need workers with job seekers who are healthy and ready to work.
