Effective Case Management first entails a supportive relationship between workforce program staff and a customer, in which staff provide guidance and motivation as customers seek training, employment, and advancement. Case management includes assessing; triaging; determining customer needs; advising on current employment opportunities, growing industries, and available training options; and providing career guidance. Secondarily, case management entails coordinating, tracking and reporting customer activities and services via data management systems. Finally, case management requires facilitating resource and service coordination with partner agencies.
