Its web-based survey and confidential reports allow organizations to compare their job placement and retention outcomes with those of similar programs. The data collected is creating meaningful outcome benchmarks for the workforce development field so that practitioners, funders, and policymakers can be better informed about what constitutes “good” performance when working with diverse populations and service delivery strategies. What does your organization gain by participating in the Workforce Benchmarking Network? 1. Confidential, customized reports on how your program results compare to programs nationally that share a variety of similar characteristics 2. Access to a national online learning community around effective practices 3. Opportunity to contribute to one of the largest national datasets on workforce development programs implemented by nonprofits/community-based organizations Visit http://skilledwork.org/news/join-the-workforce-benchmarking-network/ for more information.

The key to establishing a continuous improvement culture is creating an organization of coaches and problem-solvers.

No matter where you are on the spectrum, there's something for you in this webinar. Specifically, you will learn: • How "doing" for others violates Toyota's core principle of respect for people. • The difference between facilitating and coaching. • Traits and skills you need to be an effective coach. • How to roll out a development program across your organization to accelerate transformation.
