Figures have now shown that the success rate of Work Programme is at a “disappointingly low” 6.05%, and the national average is 7%. GoodPeople Connect is pleased to announce our equivalent rate is 66%!
In 2014 Mayor Jules Pipe, London Councils, said “It is clear that a one-size-fits-all approach to getting people back into work is not the answer. This statement still holds true in 2016. Locally-led schemes which provide targeted and integrated employment services have proved successful at getting people with complex needs into jobs.”
GoodPeople Connect has been running a personalised recruitment service, with skills training and personal development coaching, for just under three years. We’ve seen great successes, with 433 placements being made, and a huge work employment sustainment rate of 68%. Employment sustainment is measured at 6 months, so work providers and recruiters need to have a focus on long term and fully rounded support to see longlasting benefits on an individual and community wide scale.
