- Pittsburgh Works Partner Spotlight on Wes Roberts "Pittsburgh Works is invaluable for the information they provide about employers and the regional workforce. Most importantly, it has helped me enhance my connections to fellow colleagues in Pittsburgh's workforce development. A big result of this is that I was able to reduce redundancies in service by knowing which Pittsburgh Works partners can be referred to for specific community needs." ~ Wes Roberts, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
