Digital delivery of job training programs allows educational material to meet a worker where they are, matching their availability or need for specific content.
Historically, worker training required meeting in a physical space and at a given time, and it was difficult to tailor worker training to individual circumstances. And yet the limited empirical evidence evaluating worker training programs has typically found only modest success.
We are working on a variety of research projects and collaborations to improve the opportunities for workers to smoothly transition between industries and to achieve better economic outcomes. When workers better understand which programs meet their needs, they make more informed decisions, and in turn, effective training programs are incentivized to expand and better tailor their offerings to those workers who most benefit from their services.
