Get More Done with Less: A Team Approach to Delivering Results for Career Centers and Jobseekers

548

Published on

Budgets are tight and we are constantly being asked to do more with less. See what happened when RochesterWorks! partnered with Career Navigator to engage dislocated workers. This collaboration served as a win-win for career center staff efficiency, job seeker engagement, and created greater awareness of their services in the community. This session will share how to easily track services and increase outcomes using GPS Teams; strategies for working with hard-to-serve populations with less resources; strategies to increase staff productivity; and using the community to build program awareness.
Presented by Deidre Dutcher, Hannah Morgan and Todd Sloane of RochesterWorks!
