Statistical Targeting to Support Reemployment Services (presentation slides zip file)

Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) and Frontline Decision Support Systems (FDSS) are tools that use the trends and patterns from many sources of data to support decision making and prioritize service delivery. WPRS is one of the principal tools for bringing Unemployment Insurance claimants into One-Stop Career Centers and helping them interact with the workforce investment system. WPRS uses demographics and characteristics of many claimants to predict which of them will need job search assistance and helps provide a basis for referral to services. Included will be an overview of current WPRS operations and alternative uses of WPRS scores. This presentation will also explore broader topics and products in using statistical targeting to allocate services and support decision making such as FDSS. FDSS will be described by one of its chief architects. Mr. O’Leary will cover its background, operational details, screenshots from implementations, and experience from other implementation experiments. This Webinar is the fourth in a series of Webinars designed to support the reemployment technical assistance effort. Because the reemployment function is a cross-functional responsibility, the session will describe the roles various parties need to play in order to have successful operations. The Webinar should be of interest to policy makers, managers and front-line staff who want to understand and optimize tools to support reemployment.

Beyond the Headlines: Workforce Solutions for the Growing Mortgage Crisis (Presentation Slides Zip File)

The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is inviting workforce system partners at the state and regional levels in targeted states, lending institutions, and WIRED regions within those states, to participate in an interactive Webinar to discuss creative strategies for leveraging the workforce investment system as a solution to workers facing foreclosures, in many cases because they have also lost jobs or need new skills to access higher paying jobs.

Joe Carbone, President and CEO of The Workplace, Inc. in Connecticut will share a unique and creative approach that has potential for replication in other areas of the country. This Webinar will provide insight into Connecticut's process of developing a solution to the mortgage crisis by utilizing the workforce development system to help people improve their earnings and their ability to pay their mortgages. It will also provide opportunities to discuss other models being considered in other states or ideas for adapting the Connecticut model to address the varying circumstances in states and regions around the country. State-level officials, WIRED regions, workforce entities, and lending institutions are encouraged to sign up for this Webinar.

State Planning for 2010 and Beyond (Presentation Slides Zip Files)

Program Year (PY) 2010 marks the beginning of a new five-year planning cycle for Workforce Investment Act/Wagner Peyser Act (WIA/WP) State Plans. ETA intends to redesign the WIA/WP State Planning process for PY 2010 and beyond to make it a more meaningful and useful strategic planning process for states. To help inform this effort, ETA launched a consultation process with state and local workforce representatives and other stakeholders to seek input on ways to improve WIA/WP State Planning. Based on feedback received thus far in the consultation process, ETA has developed a proposal for a new direction for WIA/WP State Planning. ETA sees State Planning as a truly strategic process driven by the business leadership of the State Workforce Investment Board, rich with workforce and economic data, and reflecting the alignment of state and local policies and strategies, as well as integration among education, economic development, and workforce systems. The State Plan ideally encompasses the state’s vision for workforce development and the strategies to achieve it, while still meeting statutory requirements. In partnership with the National Governor’s Association, National Association of State Workforce Agencies, and National Association of Workforce Boards, ETA is inviting selected state and local workforce representatives to participate in this Webinar. Join ETA to hear the feedback we have received in the consultation process and engage in a dialogue about ETA’s proposed new approach for WIA/WP State Planning. This discussion will directly inform the State Planning Guidance that ETA will issue for PY 2010 and Beyond.
