The New York Times recently reported on the success of the WorkAdvance model, as substantiated by data gathered by MDRC.
The data looks at the 5-year-long randomized controlled trial research study using four national sites to test the WorkAdvance program.
WorkAdvance is a dual-customer approach that meets job seeker and employer needs. Services are tailored to local power sectors where a skills gap exists.
The findings are very positive. Consider that WorkAdvance participants have higher job satisfaction, are more likely to gain jobs that offer opportunities for career advancement, and are regularly placed into jobs that offer employer-provided benefits.
Tulsa Community WorkAdvance is very proud to be mentioned as part of this article, as well as being part of this important program.
