How Workforce Systems Improve with Merit
Aligning Resources & Connecting Data Systems to Create Better Futures
Merit is the platform that connects employers, education institutions, and students and employees with trainings, learning pathways, and opportunities that ensure workforce systems’ program success.
How it works
Pssst, Education, Human Services and Workforce Systems: Isn’t it Time for a Talk?
By aligning resources, workforce development programs can better support integrated service delivery and ensure interested partners and agencies – whether focused on education, workforce development, or human and social services – are aware of a joint commitment for improved collaboration and coordination across programs and funding sources.
Workforce systems can use the Merit platform to capture data – such as a worker’s credentials – into a digital object called a merit.
Approved training providers can issue a merit to an individual as proof of membership, eligibility, training, licensing, and other attributes. (18;45)
Individuals accessing workforce services can then share their merits with employers, online or using their smartphone to show proof of training completion, apprenticeship completion, or other workforce training – for example, to show an employer proof that their professional license is valid and up to date (an app. Program has been completed).
