• Description

These slides are from our 2016 national conference, A Nation That Works: What's It Going to Take? Through the National Workforce Benchmarking Network, ongoing effort has been made to document the strategies of high-performing workforce development organizations. This living rubric of best practices now serves as a framework for the workforce development field. In Chicago and several other cities across the country, selected learning cohorts are using this framework to evaluate programming, improve internal processes, and ultimately impact jobseeker outcomes. Through an organizational self-assessment process, staff at all levels have come together to engage in meaningful conversations about program operations and develop incremental, manageable plans for improvement. Join this session to learn more about the framework, how it's been used to date, and how you can use it at your organizations. You will have the opportunity to complete a mini selfassessment and discuss the results in the session.
