The Employment Readiness
Scale™ (ERS) is an online assessment tool that helps clients identify their strengths and challenges in becoming employment-ready, measures their changes over time, and provides organizations with roll-up reports for program planning and evaluation.
The ERS offers benefits to clients, agencies that provide employment services, and sponsors who fund the services. The ERS is designed to provide a comprehensive employment readiness assessment in 20 minutes, with a detailed feedback report and an action planning tool. Clients can retake the ERS several times to measure their progress. Our goal is to work in collaboration with ERS licensees, strengthen the capacity of their staff teams to provide career and employment services specifically targeted to client needs and to evaluate their impact in building employment readiness. We strive to stimulate dialogue and ideas for service enhancement by sharing national and regional ERS data through articles and conference presentations. Design and facilitate professional development events related to employment readiness, with a particular emphasis on developing the soft skills that are critical to success. Advocate for the career development profession in national and international forums.
