Skillful Evaluation

Skillful, a Markle Foundation initiative, is a multi-faceted program to improve job seekers’ access to employment and employers’ access to workers based on the skills needed to do a job. Skillful Initiatives are being rolled out in Colorado with support from the governor’s office, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, Microsoft and LinkedIn.

EERC has designed an implementation evaluation that will enable Skillful to learn how well their initiatives are being implemented, identify strengths and weaknesses, and make adjustments to improve their work. EERC is applying a mixed method approach, collecting and analyzing both qualitative and quantitative data.
