Funders and Sponsors

If your organization funds employment-related services being provided by any of the following types of organizations or programs, using the ERS can provide you with real-time program evaluation data:

  • Employment services agencies (government, private sector, community-based)
  • Agencies assisting persons with disabilities
  • Vocational rehabilitation programs
  • Agencies assisting new immigrants
  • Employment services for Indigenous or native populations
  • Community colleges providing training or co-op programs
  • University students in transition to the workforce
  • University adult education programs
  • Apprenticeship and work experience programs
  • Transition programs for displaced workers
  • Secondary school career guidance/development programs
  • Youth programs, including incarcerated youth
  • Prison systems with inmates transitioning to work
  • Military bases with service personnel transitioning to civilian life

As a licensed Sponsor, you will be able to get the following reports for each organization or program you fund or aggregated across all users being served:

  • Who Are Our Clients? – Provides demographic information on users.
  • Where Are Our Clients Starting From? – Provides a summary of client needs.
  • What Challenges Are Our Clients Facing? – Lists the percent of clients reporting the top five challenges.
  • How Have Our Clients Changed? – Provides the percent of clients becoming “employment ready.”
  • How Effective Are Interventions? – Provides program evaluation data for specific interventions.

You can also get the same reports in a format that compares categories of organizations that you fund, simply by coding those organizations in ways that are meaningful to you (e.g., geographic region, rural versus urban, program type, etc.).
