Workforce Development Program Solutions

EDSI has provided workforce development program services for over 35 years. Within this business segment, we assist individuals with the transition from unemployment to employment and from under-employment to self-sufficiency. EDSI works hard to promote unsubsidized employment, self-sufficiency, and smooth program operations for our government clients.

EDSI provides comprehensive job readiness, case management, skills analysis, job placement and retention services to a variety of populations: Employers, TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families), Adult and Dislocated Workers, Non-Custodial Parents, Ex-Offenders, Youth, Refugees, and other economically-disadvantaged, unemployed or underemployed populations.

Primary funding sources for our programs include: Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) and federal grant funding. We work collaboratively with funders and to understand and assess current needs and design and implement strategies that will provide the greatest impact on the overall performance of the program and region.

Why Your Organization Should Use Skills Analysis to Develop a Talent Plan, Skills Balance Sheet

Since our company’s founding in the late 70’s, job task analysis has been a cornerstone of our work. It started simple: with a pen capturing details on paper from a series of discussions and interviews with clients. A few things have changed over the years, but EDSI’s commitment to helping underserved populations transition to employment and self-sufficiency is still our number one priority.

Success Story - Roger Magdaleno

Roger Magdaleno served in the United States Army for over four years. Once he separated from the military, Roger had aspirations of becoming a truck driver. While exploring his career plan, he experienced legal problems and became incarcerated. Once released, he sought employment in a field that would give back to his community. Roger became a youth specialist in Detroit, assisting and mentoring at-risk teens. This was a valuable experience, however Roger still felt the desire to fulfill his true calling. To achieve this, he needed to obtain his CDL-A license.

One-Stop Center Certification

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires that each state must establish the minimum criteria for certification of One-Stop centers and the One-Stop delivery system. The certification criteria allows the State to set standards for customer-focused, seamless services from a network of partners that help individuals overcome barriers to becoming and staying employed. Certification is required to be done by local boards at least once every three years in order for One-Stop centers and the One-Stop delivery system to receive infrastructure funding. The certification process is critical in setting the minimum level of quality and consistency of services in One-Stop centers across each State. Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDB) are charged with assessing the One-Stop centers and the One-Stop delivery system within their region to ensure that they meet WIOA and state criteria.
