Whitepaper: Creating Job-Driven Workforce Programs for the 21st Century
U.S. lawmakers passed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014 to improve existing federal workforce development programs and build a 21st-century workforce with the skills required to meet the evolving needs of American businesses. A key component of this initiative is helping state and local governments create training and assistance programs that are backed by solid evidence of their efficacy.
State and local governments are now wrestling with the challenge of how to define, collect, and analyze the necessary data to create objective, evidence-based jobs programs.
Recent efforts by state and local agencies to expand and enrich their data with external data sources have achieved powerful results in terms of realizing WIOA’s goals, such as averting layoffs, supporting regional industries, and developing workforce training and assistance programs geared to the precise hiring needs of local businesses.
In this white paper, you’ll learn about:
- Highlights of WIOA and Data-Driven Job Training
- Verifying, Validating, and Enriching Agency Data
- Improving Layoff Aversion and Rapid Response with Data and Predictive Analytics
