You’re continually asked to do more with less
As local workforce investment boards struggle to make the most of limited funding, the number of people seeking help from One-Stop Career Centers continues to grow. Adding to this challenge are rising employer demands for top-notch skills and education, as well as more stringent requirements from the federal and state governments for improving efficiency to retain funding.
So how can you do it all?
How can you serve more people better
with the same limited resources?
If you stick with the status quo,
you can’t do it all.
You may be asking yourself…
What can I do better?
A: Automate and integrate. Manual processes and/or the use of many separate automated systems that do not share data waste your team’s valuable time and typically do not yield valuable management information required to run your business. In addition to being slow and ineffective, these manual processes are costly and resource-intensive, involving approval from a multitude of individuals across departments and levels. Compounding this issue is the fact that systems used on the program side do not integrate with those used by fiscal managers, resulting in huge knowledge gaps across your organization.
It is our belief and experience that a single system combining both Program data along with accounting information will give your management team the reports necessary to make good decisions.
What’s at risk?
A: Under serving your community / over spending your budget. In our 20 years of experience we have seen both. On one hand, there is the WIB that scales back their services in an effort to not go over budget only to find out after the year end that they underspent their budget and had to return unused funds. On the other hand, there is the WIB that continues to serve customers not realizing that they have over committed their funds. Either of these situations results in an unhappy Board of Directors. Workforce PS provides real-time information allowing your to avoid both overspending your budget and underserving your community.
What’s there to lose?
A: In addition to threatening the livelihood of your workforce investment board, these disjointed and tedious processes also hurt program participants. Without a means of helping people in real-time, your organization may significantly delay job placement as clients wait several days or weeks to be approved for training and other services. Additionally, without a clear, timely view of how much money is available, you might be leaving funds on the table that could help additional people secure work.
Believe it or not, the answer is quite simple.
