We have evidence that CareerForce programming works. The net impact research study found the programs that boosted the likelihood of employment and higher wages. Additionally, when we asked CareerForce partners from around the state which strategies are most effective at helping their clients find sustainable, living wage employment, they said:
- Building one-on-one relationships
- Providing intense navigation
- Addressing client needs that seem unrelated to employment, such as chemical dependencies or mental health
- Partnering closely with employers or educational institutions
But to understand how it all works and how we can continue to improve CareerForce best practices, we need more than data. We need to hear from you—the staff and partners who serve our career seekers and businesses.
