Houston Back on Track Partners Bring Career and Soft Skills Training to Houston Workforce

Greater Houston Partnership job recovery initiative continues to build partner network

Houston Back on Track, the job recovery initiative of Greater Houston Partnership, has partnered with some of the largest community, education and employer partners, including Memorial Assistance Ministries, WorkFaith and Primary Services to empower and employ the Houston workforce. The initiative is currently welcoming new partners into the program to broaden access to services across the city.

“Our Houston Back on Track partners are integral in what we do, and we are grateful for the time and resources they invest in Houston,” said Greater Houston Partnership Director of Regional Workforce Recovery, Carl Salazar. “The economy continues to have a profound impact on individuals and families, and our employment and community partners are working hard to counteract that impact around the city, placing people into new careers and offering soft skills training, education and personal support.”

The Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers reports inflation rose 6.4% nationwide from February 2022 through January 2023. Each employer partner, including Houston Methodist, Mustang CAT, Cintas and more, are addressing employment gaps across Houston. Salazar says many are hiring right now and are seeking candidates who are ready and eager to learn hands-on from experienced trainers.

While Houston Back on Track places people into meaningful careers alongside its partners, the underlying needs and realities facing the workforce of Houston are pertinent. Its community partners offer wraparound services, including transportation and childcare assistance, food pantries, financial planning, education and other resources.
