Great work Jessica and DOR. This sounds exciting!
DOR Demand Side Employment Initiative (DSEI) All inquiries on the initiative as a whole can be sent to email box email@example.com. All questions regarding the RFI for small and medium sized businesses should be directed to email box firstname.lastname@example.org and should include RFI #DSEI-22-01 Response Package in the subject line.
I think using the term "group home" could be confusing for some. Where does AFHA fall?
Great point Carole we can then identify where there is greater success.
AFHA is Adult Family Home Agency
I wonder if the approximate 15% of PIPs leading to employment only captures if one PIP did or did not lead to a job.. PIPs can build resumes/skills and perhaps lead to employment later on in the individual's experience.
Looking at PIP data can be challenging, as some PIPs may carry over to more than one fiscal year, a person might have multiple PIPs, and some persons are not looking for the PIP to become employment (just looking for work experience).
Great points Carole
WHAT DOES THE DATA TELL US?
BASED ON THE PRESENTATIONS FROM DDS AND EDD, WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT DATA ELEMENTS THAT SHOULD BE MEASURED OVER TIME?
Total population served and total estimated eligible population
time on job, wages, participants satisfaction, employer satisfaction, types of jobs,
Number/percentage of persons who do not want to work, and reason why.
Are they self-employed? College? Other vocational program
Employment data (total indivduals employment, CIEs , PIPs, etc) relative to job availability and population (to understand rural vs urban, for instance); relative to size of regional center area, eventually, length of employment, some way to measuee career development
WHAT WOULD WE WANT TO COMPARE OUR DATA WITH?
You do not have to be 100% independent to work. You may self-employed or have supports.
Should we track how many providers are certified in Discovery?
Tracking the increase/decrease in number of employer participants would also be helpful.
It's tricky with CA's Lanterman Act entitlement, but itt would be interesting to see how many Individuals with IDD (of total eligible/available to work).. and try to find states with lessons we can learn from. Washington comes to mind only for it's historical comittment to having the State and Counties hire individuals with IDD. Not sure if they have continued to be strong in that.. but just as an example of states that have something to teach us.
Wages, length of employment, promotional advancement to measure success, ability to integrate independently (how long before they become independent in the work force)
Excellent point Alice!
WHAT MIGHT BE INDICATORS OF SUCCESS (MORE…, INCREASED, ETC.)?
Increase in number of those employed, a higher percentage of the total, increase number of employer participants, rate of satisfaction for both employee and employer
Satisfaction with job, number of hours worked, and service provider. Opportunity for advancement.
Increased wages or hours worked, career growth, jobs with benefits
increased numbers of individuals in work, retention, increased percentage moving from PIP to CIE. We also need to be able to use any data to make changes
there are also suggestions in the q&A
need data that shows ROI for legislature
@Carole, all input in the Q&A and chat are being saved and will be passed on to the team so we don't miss any suggestions
Thank you for the data!
great meeting - thanks all
