How We Help

Make a difference for citizens, employers, and communities with advanced technology and data tools.

Historic unemployment rates mean there are now 1.6 jobs for every unemployed person in the United States. Meeting this unprecedented talent shortage and training workers for the jobs tomorrow will bring demands strategic thinking and innovation—and tools that help connect citizens to training and jobs. Meanwhile, many states struggle to connect data across agencies in support of data-driven decisions, program evaluation, and the reporting that drives economic mobility and economic development.

Data analytics, secure data sharing, and secure collaboration further agencies’ reach and impact, helping build connection among state agencies, economic development agencies, nonprofits, and other critical partners. Our team helps states implement and adopt new technology, achieve large modernization projects with minimal disruption, and operationalize SLDS systems to drive positive outcomes for citizens.

See how your workforce agency can go further in achieving great outcomes for citizens.


If your state is like most, its workforce programs and systems were entirely overwhelmed in March 2020. States that had been doing their best to work with legacy systems and underfunded programs could no longer ignore the fact that their foundation was crumbling and needed to change—now. Unemployment insurance fraud further complicated agencies’ efforts to reach those in need. And now—years after the crisis—historic unemployment fuels a new set of challenges while so many organizations struggle to address the old ones.

As employment, economic, and funding landscapes shift, matching effective services to citizens and employers can help states thrive. It’s not about putting on band-aids or implementing quick fixes that aren’t sustainable. Leveraging data and technology helps agencies and organizations find new ways to address unmet needs in workforce development and ensures more people get the services they need to excel. It provides tools that meet citizens where they are to help them more easily navigate training and job-seeking endeavors. It generates the reporting that compels economic development and economic mobility. And it overcomes the data silos that have obstructed workforce progress from every angle.

Any project we undertake begins with a detailed discovery phase during which our project team catalogs available datasets, identifies relevant attributes, and develops knowledge of program and policy goals. An intensely collaborative partnership carries this information forward through an Agile, iterative problem-solving and design process. Working with leadership and representative stakeholders, the Resultant team utilizes agency expertise, coordinates with appropriate vendors, and keeps careful project, change, and communication management practices in place to move projects forward to successful completion.
