Jobs and Employment Data Exchange (JEDx)
The JEDx initiative seeks to develop a public-private approach for collecting and using standards-based jobs and employment data. CREC’s role was to assist the Chamber as it facilitated engagement of a network of several state pilot partners to Unemployment Insurance records as a foundation for a more comprehensive employment record that can lower employer costs for reporting data to government, improve workforce analytics, and empower learners and workers with a validated employment record. This feasibility study aimed to set the parameters for an initiative to support pilot states, facilitate stakeholder engagement within each of 7 states, and develop common definitions and systems architecture.
