INSIGHTS AND ANALYTICS: CUSTOM CO-OP/WIL EXPERIENCE REPORTS
We have access to the world’s largest database of talent and employment for the student demographic - a database of over 30,000 learners and over 7,000 employers/host organizations. With this data, we can analyze many parts of the student or employment experience and can work with your organization to create a customized data set and analysis that you can then compare to broad benchmarks, others in your industry or even with your own student experiences over time.
We can prepare a report for you based on your requirements and also present the information to a group of your colleagues to share not only the data and analysis, but also the implications for how you could improve your hiring approach and recruitment strategy.
CUSTOM CO-OP/WIL WORKPLACE RESEARCH
Organizations often have their own questions about work-integrated learning (WIL) programs. Some questions include understanding the student motivation for applying to your job postings, learning more about the kinds of jobs that diverse students are looking for, and understanding students’ perceptions of an individual organization as a potential workplace. Consult with us on the areas of your WIL programs that you would like to investigate.
Areas of research include:
Student experience, student perception, diversity, student values versus employer values, job description attractiveness to students
Our team of researchers is equipped to review your work-integrated learning (WIL) programs to assess their strengths and provide recommendations for improvement using our WIL Quality Framework. The external perspective will enhance your own program understanding and the recommendations can be used to form an action plan of improvements and enhancements over time.
Our work-integrated learning subject matter experts are well-known keynote speakers often asked to present at global and national conferences related to work-integrated learning, the future of work and lifelong learning, the future of recruiting, the values gap and the impact of COVID on student work-terms. Speaking fees, if any, will be assessed based on each organization’s requirements.
