Human Capital Lab to research effectiveness of workforce development programs

Omaha, NE – Bellevue University's Human Capital Lab is beginning a three-year study of the effectiveness of workforce development programs.

The Omaha Workforce Funding Collaborative approached BU about the study. It could lead to changes that better serve the unemployed and underemployed. The Human Capital Lab's study will provide concrete data about the impact of current programs.

Jennifer Moss of the Human Capital Lab says they can provide national data about students, graduation and success rates. Moss says the study will focus in part on the employment needs in north Omaha.
