Workforce Specialists

The Workforce Specialists work closely with sites to identify or develop a workforce intervention to be tested and then provide ongoing support, guidance, coaching, and technical assistance to sites regarding all aspects of their selected workforce intervention. Our specialists have expertise regarding organizational culture and climate, its assessment, and the design of interventions to improve it.

Implementation Specialists

The Implementation Specialists work closely with sites to co-develop the project work plan and support the Site Implementation Manager and the site’s implementation team. The team will use the PII Approach as a framework and provide intensive, ongoing support, guidance, coaching, and technical assistance to sites in all aspects of project implementation.

Evaluation Specialists

The Evaluation Specialists work closely with sites to conceptualize research approaches, design measures and tools, collect data using various methodologies, analyze data, interpret results, and summarize findings for reporting and dissemination. They use the PII Approach to work with sites to use data to inform decision making throughout the project.
