Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Announces Florida’s ‘Return to Work’ Initiative



On May 12th , the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity announced Florida’s ‘Return to Work’ initiative. This initiative is focused on encouraging Floridians to return to the workforce, helping employers attract job seekers, and continuing to fuel the state’s economic growth.

Governor DeSantis recently issued Executive Order 21-102, which lifts all local COVID-19 restrictions and mandates on individuals and businesses. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Florida remained open for business, and this action reinforces the Governor’s commitment to helping Floridians return to the workforce.

Through the ‘Return to Work’ initiative, DEO is also encouraging Floridians who are interested in learning a new career path or need assistance looking for employment, to turn to CareerSource Florida for assistance.

CareerSource Florida can help job seekers explore new employment opportunities, provide workforce and job-training skills, and provide career advancement assistance.
