Discover how the Center for Employment Opportunities uses Exponent Case Management to track, measure and report on outcomes

We talk a lot about driving impact, but how do you actually go from providing services to proving that your clients are having positive outcomes? Measuring how many people you’ve served is all well and good – and should certainly be done – but can you truly measure your impact? Are the lives of your clients better or more manageable? Do they have more opportunities available to them through the training you provided? Are they satisfied with their job? Is your community prospering because of your program’s success?

These questions are quite common for human services organizations to ponder, yet the question of how still remains. We invite you to learn how the Center for Employment Opportunities uses the Workforce Development Module in conjunction with Outcomes Manager to measure employment outcomes. We’ll walk you through a series of reports and dashboards that showcase program success and outcomes.

Whether your organization’s entire mission is workforce development, or only one program your organization offers, you often need data to showcase how your program is advancing the workforce and closing the skills gap.

Closing this skills gap is just one of the many pieces of the puzzle that workforce development organizations solve for. So how can you showcase the relationship you’re fostering with your client is leading to better outcomes?

Access this webinar to discover how the Center for Employment Opportunities correlates the training they provide with improved employment outcomes and career advancement. With the use of Exponent Case Management’s Workforce Development Module, and through a continuous partnership with our managed services team, CEO can correlate classes, certifications, placement and retention, and ultimately how they drive radically better employee outcomes.

Oh, we hear you! Your organization spends too much time entering or cleaning up data about your participants and not enough time helping to affect change of those participants. Well, never fear—we’re always working to release new features that help you to reduce the amount of time you spend on data entry and validation. With the release of version 20 of Exponent Case Management, we’re adding a new version of our Mass Record Entry feature, which will make it easier than ever for you to mass update your participant data. Mass updates allow you to add or edit multiple records at once without spending hours of time on data entry!

Distribution centers, food banks, after school programs, workforce development training and skills classes—these are just some of the scenarios where Mass Record Entry can be useful. If you’re working in human services for long enough, you know that data involving people is always in flux. With that in mind, we have added the ability to update up to 2000 records with ease. In just a few clicks, you can easily search, filter and view participant data and seamlessly update subsets or all of those records at one time. Mass updates have never been easier.

Let’s face it—if you work with dozens or even hundreds of participants, data entry can be a drag. You might consider hiring a small army just to keep up with all the paperwork! Or, instead, you could just sign up for our webinar to learn how you can streamline your workday with mass updates.
