Employment & Staffing
The Arkansas Department of Workforce Services began its legacy of serving the unemployed and underemployed in 1937, as the Employment Security Division of the Arkansas Department of Labor. Through the growth and development of its partners and programs, ADWS has evolved into a truly multifaceted organization. Divisions of the agency include: Unemployment Insurance, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Employment Assistance, Labor Market Information, the Governor’s Dislocated Worker Taskforce, and the Arkansas Workforce Centers.
