Align Your Practices to Demand
We help agencies and organizations align their programs and policies with labor market demand; conducting expert and employer interviews and focus groups, and customer needs assessments. Recent examples include:
Cohort Learning Session #1
Project Kickoff Meeting on September 24, 2013
The New York City Department of Small Businesses asked the NYCLMIS to perform geographic analyses that would inform the placement of 10 new Workforce1 Expansion Center. NYCLMIS mapped concentrations of service - people served and placed in jobs by the City's Workforce1 Career and Sector Centers - and need - individuals receiving Unemployment Insurance(using aggregate records obtained from the New York State Department of Labor). The results showed an overall alignment of service to need, even at the peak of the recession and identified strategic locations where additional sites could further improve service.
