For several years, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has supported research on the use of Real-Time Labor Market Information (RT LMI) along with traditional LMI. In late 2013, ETA began a technical assistance project to increase knowledge of the RT LMI landscape and support selected states in building their capacity to utilize those resources. As part of this technical assistance project an environmental scan was published in August 2014. The scan seeks to inform the workforce development system about the common uses, successes and challenges of RT LMI. It also provides an overview of major RT LMI products and profiles three states and three regional workforce development knowledge centers that are using RT LMI to identify and address labor market issues. On February 10th, we invite you to join a webinar to learn about and explore information contained in the environmental scan as well as hear from highlighted states.

In October 2013, Governor Cuomo signed a bill into law that gave local human capital development stakeholders--like workforce agencies and providers, community colleges and school districts--access to the earnings and employment information of people who completed their education, training and job readiness programs. This was a huge step forward for the state’s workforce development system, and will allow individuals and policymakers alike to understand which educational and workforce development programs are producing the best outcomes for participants. With this information, New Yorkers would be able to enroll in the programs that have a proven record of success, while state and local officials could better align limited public resources with the most successful programs.
This symposium in Albany will explore what is needed to make the most of this opportunity and ensure that Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature go beyond merely providing access to this data and give local agencies and providers the expertise and administrative capacity they need to use it.
Please join the Center for an Urban Future and the New York Association of Training and Employment Professionals (NYATEP) at this lunchtime forum, which will examine what investments the state must make so that local workforce providers can effectively use this valuable resource to improve their programs; present successful case studies from states that are at the forefront of leveraging wage records for evaluation, such as Washington, Florida and Maryland; and ensure that New York, with the billions of dollars it spends every year on education and human capital programs, moves towards a more accountable workforce development system.
