Challenging Times

The summer of 2020 will continue the year’s trend to be a challenging one for the public workforce system.  

WorkforceGPS will continue to provide webinars, on-line training and technical assistance resources to highlight resources to support the public workforce in these changing times. While the need for the public workforce system's resources and services is greater than ever, so many of us are now working remotely and many American Job Centers are either temporarily closed or providing limited service by appointment only. While this situation is challenging, it has prompted us to be creative within the system and more of our services provided (or delivered) virtually. WorkforceGPS will continue to provide webinars, on-line training, and technical assistance resources to highlight resources to support the public workforce in these changing times.  

Focus on LMI

lmiData-driven planning and decision making is an essential component of successful job recovery and reengagement efforts. Throughout July, WorkforceGPS will highlight popular labor market information (LMI) resources available on this site as well as new and unique real-time LMI resources that will be helpful in guiding workforce services and recovery planning efforts in this changing economic environment.

Evidence that Reemployment Services Demonstrate Impacts on Unemployment

Pandemic UIAs our public workforce development system continues to help unemployment insurance recipients return to work, it can apply evidence-based approaches to job search assistance (JSA) and reemployment services (RES) found on two WorkforceGPS communities of practice (community).  Results from three random assignment evaluations of RES and JSA programs for UI recipients demonstrated that the approaches used reduced the duration of unemployment or the total amount of UI benefits received, and some sites also saw increases in employment and earning rates.  Explore these Workforce Systems Strategies community resources to learn more about the RES and JSA random assignment evaluation findings:
