Job Placement and Job Retention Rates in Publicly Funded Workforce Programs

Source Organization: Philadelphia Research Initiative

01/18/2012 - The Philadelphia Research Initiative examined Philadelphia’s workforce development system, which helps residents get jobs or skills and employers find workers to sustain or expand their businesses. The report, Philadelphia’s Workforce Development Challenge: Serving Employers, Helping Job Seekers and Fixing the System, looked at the system’s operations and performance in comparison to others in Pennsylvania and nationwide. The other areas studied were the Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Kansas City, Mo., St. Louis, San Diego and Tucson metropolitan regions, chosen mostly because of their similarity to the Philadelphia region in unemployment rate, educational attainment and occupational profile.
