11.5.9 Effectiveness in Serving Employers

Effective date: August 7, 2017 - October 14, 2018

There are three methods related to measuring the "effectiveness in serving employers". During PY 2016 and PY 2017 states were required to select two of three methods to maximize flexibility in selecting the measures that best suit states' needs and allow the Departments the opportunity to evaluate States' experiences in using these measures. These baseline measures will help to determine whether the indicator will be revised in PY 2018. Wisconsin's core WIOA programs selected the Employer Penetration and Repeat Business Rates as the two measures to report in PY 2016 and PY 2017. The employer measure is a single joint indicator that is not broken out by program. All WIOA Core and Partner programs assist the state and local areas in meeting this indicator of performance. The three methods are:

  1. Participant Retention with Same Employer1
    Number of participants who exited during the reporting period who were employed by the same employer during the 2nd quarter after exit and the 4th quarter after exit DIVIDED BY the number of participants who exited during the reporting period.

  2. Employer Penetration2 (Selected by Wisconsin for Pilot Years)
    The total number of total establishments, as defined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Quarterly Census of Earnings and Wages (QCEW) program that receives a service or, if it is an ongoing activity, are continuing to receive a service or other assistance during the reporting period DIVIDED BY the number of total establishments, as defined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Quarterly Census of Earnings and Wages program, located within the state during the final month or quarter of the reporting period.

    QCEW - Definition of Establishments: An establishment is generally a single, physical location at which economic activity occurs (e.g., store, factory, farm, etc.). An enterprise, on the other hand, may consist of more than one location performing the same or different types of economic activities. Each establishment of that enterprise is assigned a NAICS code, based on its own primary activity.

  3. Repeat Business Rate3 (Selected by Wisconsin for Pilot Years)
    Number of establishments served during the past three years who have continued to receive a service DIVIDED BY number of establishments served during the past three years.

    QCEW - Definition of Establishments: An establishment is generally a single, physical location at which economic activity occurs (e.g., store, factory, farm, etc.). An enterprise, on the other hand, may consist of more than one location performing the same or different types of economic activities. Each establishment of that enterprise is assigned a NAICS code, based on its own primary activity4.
