There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Benchmarking One-Stop Centers: Understanding Keys to Success

The Corporation for a Skilled Workforce and four committed Illinois partners -- workforce boards in Northern Cook County, Chicago, Central Illinois and Crossroads -- have produced "Benchmarking One-Stop Centers: Understanding Keys to Success." The study is organized in terms of critical factors for One-Stop success - for serving employers, for serving jobseekers and for design and management.

The study team visited 20 Centers in 12 workforce areas within seven States.

The "Services to Employers" chapter - which draws heavily on the perspectives and insights of private sector representatives - contains:

  • Defining Critical Success Factors for Employer Services
  • Potential Critical Success Factors and Indicators Used to Organize the Study
  • Business Services Approaches
  • Key Design Considerations
  • Choices: Who Operates Business Services?
  • Choices: The Pros and Cons of Fee for Service
  • Choices: Managing Employer Services With Account Representatives and Contact Management Systems
  • Measures of Success
  • Reframing the Critical Success Factors
  • Services to Employers -- Site Summary

The authors believes the study "sets the stage for answering the crucial question of how best to measure One-Stop Centers and systems rather than programs." The full report can be downloaded from the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce's website. The report is also available through the Promising Practices website.
