The ERSA Employability Awards are the most respected in the industry and the Innovation category is hotly fought after. Our team is therefore thrilled and proud to be one of only four organisations shortlisted for the award this year. This is no mean feat. The Innovation Award is normally only for organisations that deliver employability programmes. This is the first time a technology solution has been shortlisted.
So why have we been shortlisted?
In a study of 6.093 jobseekers, Aptem (formerly MyWorkSearch) users were overall 43% more likely to secure employment. This is a significant achievement and one that can be scaled throughout a provider’s programmes. Unlike case management solutions that are focused on the advisor only, our technology enables advisors and jobseekers to interact and manages the job search workflows. We transform what can be chaotic and haphazard into an organised process.
Combine this with the integrated CRM for employer engagement, referral processing, eligibility management, reporting and outcome tracking and it is no wonder that our platform is regarded as a significant innovation.
