Title :
  Evaluation of Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services Policy Workgroup: Final Report and Recommendations
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report presents a list of seven recommendations concerning the future direction of the Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) system based on the work of the Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services Policy Workgroup. The Policy Workgroup, established in January 1998, was composed of State, Regional and Federal workforce development staff. The charge of the Group was to examine the WPRS system as it has evolved from 1994-98 and provide recommendations to improve its quality and to make it more effective in achieving its ultimate goal--enabling dislocated workers to find new jobs as rapidly as possible at wages comparable to their prior wages. The recommendations address modeling and model use; how to profile; who and when to refer to reemployment services; what services and how many services to provide; program linkages between the Unemployment Insurance, Wagner-Peyser (Employment Service) and Dislocated Worker (JTPA Title III) programs; adequacy of funding; and communication, feedback systems, and reporting.
