– All right, Fat Tire, Belgian, Colorado beer.
Open it up, see it, smell it, (bottle clonks) taste it.
All right, today I wanna do something a little bit different.
Instead of actually talking to you about data, I wanna talk to you about how people use data, ooh.
A lot of people ask me, “how do people use Emsi Data and what are your best clients doing with it?”
Let’s reveal the secrets of the people who do the best.
Obviously, our clients do a lot of different things with data.
They build programs, engage students and job seekers, discover the best regions for their business, and so much more.
Regardless of the activity, our clients actually take many of the same steps on their road to success.
So let’s talk about the four ways our clients use Emsi Data to get things done.
Step 1, they discover.
Our best clients are curious.
They use labor market data to investigate and discover.
The best data users become experts on what is going on around them, and they tell the story of their surroundings.
They use data to discover things they didn’t know about in their community, industries, jobs, skills, employers and more.
And that’s the place to start.
You start by knowing.
Step 2, they strategize.
Once they know, they roll up the sleeves, they take action.
They use our data to shape their strategy.
This is all about being wise stewards.
Our clients use Emsi Data to maximize limited time, people, and resources to address the most important economic, educational, and workforce needs in front of them.
They use our data to focus on what matters most and where they can actually make the biggest impact.
Step 3, they lead.
Strategy gives way to leadership.
A solid strategy and a good plan informed by good data turns our clients into powerful leaders.
And it doesn’t matter if it’s a community college, a university, or workforce board, an economic developer, somebody in HR, or a staffing company.
Our clients use data to become leaders for whatever problem they’re trying to tackle.
And they pull others with them.
They raise support, they influence, they build solutions.
And finally, finally, step 4.
They build relationships and community around their cause.
One of the things that strikes me most in all of this is that our clients ultimately use data to build relationships with other people.
They are collaborators.
Higher Ed builds relationships with students, companies in the community, workforce and economic developers use data to connect people and work, businesses use data to find the best talent.
So here’s the big thing I want you to notice.
In all of this data talk, we’re actually talking about people.
The point of data isn’t data, right?
The point of data is to get something done.
And in this case, we’re talking about helping people.
Work is about people.
The economy is about people.
Data is just a tool that helps you relate to people.
It helps you understand them, communicate with them, lead them, inspire them, create value for them, and help them.
And when you do that, well guess what, it makes you super valuable and relevant to those people, right?
This is what our clients do.
They’re very concerned about the relevance and value of them in other people’s lives.
That’s the secret.
So here’s the encouragement.
Use our data to understand, strategize, lead, and build relationships.
Signing off for Emsi, Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend.
That’s all I got.
– Let me, let me think about it for a second.
