How We Help Workforce Boards
Of all the data tools I use, I find EMSI's to be the one that I use literally every day.— Scott Sheely, Executive Director, Lancaster County Workforce Investment Board
For the past five years EMSI has worked closely with some of the nation’s top workforce investment boards to build data-driven systems that allow WIBs to connect with regional employers and help local jobseekers find local training providers and long-lasting careers.
With Analyst, workforce professionals have a complete business services toolkit that can be used to answer a broad range of workforce and economic questions. Analyst helps you connect workers to viable jobs and businesses to skilled workers.
Analyst helps WIBs understand the local labor market so they can tackle workforce demand and shortage issues, moving workers from declining occupations to better careers, and partnering to shape career and tech education training around labor market demands.
Whether looking for new employment opportunities or just starting out their careers, jobseekers need reliable, up-to-date information on jobs in their regions. Career Coach provides workforce boards with a way to deliver all the relevant info so they can help jobseekers connect with employment and training.
The simple web-based tool presents the most current data on employment trends, wages, job postings, and related education and training—all in a simple interface. Career Coach can be placed on your workforce board's website or One-Stop or career center location, and it's customizable to fit your organization's needs.
EMSI delivers customized, easy-to-understand reports that help regional planners and decision-makers analyze a range of workforce, education, and economic development issues.
Our staff of economists, data analysts, technical writers, and designers develop timely, accurate, and effective reports—from specifications to finished product.
