“This Jobs Program Just Might Get People Back to Work” is the title of a recent Pew Trusts article that describes the success and expansion of the U.S. Department of Labor’s RESEA (Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment) program, particularly in Nevada.
The story details how Nevada’s RESEA program has the best results of all the states studied, saving more than four times the RESEA costs and shortening participants' unemployment insurance benefits by approximately three weeks.
Nevada’s RESEA program “significantly reduced the amount of time people received unemployment benefits,” states the Pew Trusts article by staff writer Sophie Quinton.
Nevada uses Career Action Resources assessment guides with its RESEA participants. In particular, our Layoff-to-Employment Action Planner (LEAP) is described in the first RESEA (then called REA) study commissioned by the U.S. Department of Labor as an “innovative self-assessment” that helps claimants identify their needs.
The USDOL report also states LEAP is useful to workforce staff by helping them better refer claimants to much-needed services. Nevada is now using Your Employment Search (YES) in its RESEA program. Read more about the RESEA research.
