By exploring their data-driven outcomes, Employ Milwaukee can manage resources more effectively and enhance service delivery. At times, they have had to contend with unstable funding and WIA dollars being cut or delayed, resulting in limited resources for programs. In those instances, Employ Milwaukee uses historical information to determine which training sessions and sectors provide maximum impact per dollar and allocate resources to those areas first.
In one case, a GED program offered in conjunction with Milwaukee Public Schools, which allows GED candidates to receive a standard high school diploma, was fully funded but inadequately attended. Rather than returning unused dollars or failing the contract, Employ Milwaukee was able to identify the need to boost attendance and provide logistical resources to turn the program around and make it a success.
