June 2011

Imagistic launched a site for Public Private Ventures as part of the Benchmarking Project.

According to P/PV, the Benchmarking Project provides tools for workforce development programs to evaluate and improve their results. Its web-based survey and confidential reports allow organizations to compare their job placement and retention outcomes with those of similar programs.

To date, almost 300 programs across the country have submitted aggregate data on participants, services and outcomes. The data collected is creating meaningful outcome benchmarks for the workforce development field, so that practitioners, funders and policymakers can be better informed about what constitutes "good" performance when working with diverse populations and service delivery strategies.

The site was built on a Drupal CMS integrated with a WordPress site for ease of content management. Member features include reports access and account administration, along with exclusive access to content and forums.
