#1 Translating Labor Market Information into Service Delivery - Benchmark Version Breeze Recording Transcript

The goal of this 20 minute Breeze recording session is to provide an audio and visual introduction to each the “Benchmark” versions of the Transforming LMI into Service Delivery e-Learning curriculum and modules. The objective is to make the material more accessible to potential replicators. In addition, this will provide a quick way for replicators to understand and appreciate the differences in the approach taken by the states. This will be supported by standard operating procedures, instruction sheets, PowerPoint presentations, slide-shows, and other materials. Each of the Translating LMI into Service Delivery e-Learning curriculum developers will briefly discuss how they approached modification and customization of the original material to meet the states needs. In addition the Manhattan Strategy Group (MSG) will provide details on how they went about developing the “Benchmark” version of the e-Learning curriculum. We hope other States will use this benchmark version of the e-Learning modules to customize and roll-out this important material in their own States. The moderator will provide background on the development of the original LMI e-learning curriculum by the ETA technical assistant team including subject matter experts, and professional instructional designers in 2009 and 2010. The moderator will also provide information about the approach ETA used to field test, customize, and roll-out the e-learning modules for state use in 2010 and 2011. The balance of the session will be Q and A ending with the identification of a Federal contact for further questions or assistance. Copy the following hyperelink to your Internet Browser to start the Benchmark Version Breeze Recording. https://www.workforce3one.org/ws/www/Folders/3001123837230654033/webinar.htm

Data Sets, Tools, and Approaches to Improve the Reemployment Function

By changing perspective to recognize the profound economic and workforce changes taking place in the global economy, the workforce investment system can help regional economies flourish by providing high growth and high demand industries with a workforce that has the skills and talent needed to continue growing and competing in 21st Century while helping laid off workers transition to new jobs and careers. To help improve the way the workforce investment system does business in the new economy, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has undertaken a reemployment technical assistance effort to identify the workforce investment system's new strategies to effectively connect unemployed workers with the skills and jobs in demand in regional economies. This Webinar is the third in a series of Webinars designed to support the reemployment technical assistance effort. Because the reemployment function is a cross functional responsibility, this webinar will focus on tools available to policy makers, managers, and front-line staff that can help them better assess and serve businesses in need of a workforce, the unemployed talent pool, and help their regional economies prosper and grow.

The critical questions for discussion in this listening session are as follows.

Overarching question -

What should a reauthorized WIA include or prescribe about data-driven decision-making and use of employment statistics, economic analysis, labor market and actionable workforce information to inform workforce development and investment decisions?
During this two-hour listening session, representatives from the stakeholder community will make very brief comments and respond to questions submitted via the Webinar’s chat feature. The telephone lines will be opened for additional discussion, comments, or questions. Additional discussion focus questions will also help to frame the discussion.

A) What are the most valued labor market data sets, workforce information, and economic analysis tools or approaches used to inform workforce development decision-making?

B) What are the information gaps?

C) What is the biggest challenge to providing access and assistance in using economic data and actionable workforce information to improve:

  • state and local workforce investment board investment decision-making?
  • One Stop Career Center provision of LMI data to business and to help individual career planning decisions?
  • the education system’s strategic investments in training courses?
  • the public’s benefit?

D) How should WIA be revised to:

  • provide missing data?
  • strengthen generation of new data?
  • improve timeliness?
  • promote its effective use by the workforce development and economic development systems, businesses, and job seekers?
