Entered Employment Rate definition (EER)



Examples how to calculate EER



Follow up for Entered Employment



Exclusions



Keys to Success for EER

Two Measures of Placements 

SCSEP Sponsor Agreement contains two performance measures related to Unsubsidized Employment 

Unsubsidized Placement Goal



Entry Into Unsubsidized Employment

Two Measures of Placements



Placement goal (UE) is based on a percentage of the number of slots

♦Entered Employment goal is based on a percentage of the number of total exits

Why Entered Employment is Important 





Subgrantees have improved on the UE goal. Performance on the Entered Employment Measure has not improved. SSAI continues to lag behind other National Grantees on Entered Employment

Understanding Entered Employment Rate (EER)

“Placement” 



A “placement” or “UE” alone does not automatically result in entered employment The “placement” does not count toward Entered Employment unless the individual is employed during the first quarter after the exit quarter

Definition of Entered Employment 



Any participant who has exited from SCSEP, who receives wages for any amount of unsubsidized work during the 1st quarter after their exit quarter Any income greater than zero will count for Entered Employment

Entered Employment Rate (EER) Basics 





Each calendar quarter we exit participants – UE, Voluntary, For-Cause etc. We follow-up in the quarter after exit to see if these participants “Entered Employment” (Follow-Up 1) Our performance is measured for the overall Program Year (Participants who Enter Employment July – June)

Entered Employment Rate Definition The number of participants who are employed in the first quarter after the exit quarter Divided by The number of participants who exited during the quarter minus exclusions

Entered Employment Rate (EER) is a Simple Formula

Number employed 1st qtr after exit qtr (Numerator) Number of exits minus the Number of Exclusions (Denominator)

Think Calendar Quarters If the participant exited during this quarter: April 1st – June 30th

EER tracks if they worked (any amount) at any time during this quarter: July 1st – Sept 30th

July 1st – Sept 30th

Oct 1st – Dec 31st

Oct 1st – Dec 31st

Jan 1st – March 31st

Jan 1st – March 31st

April 1st – June 30th

Things to Consider 

Quality of the placement



Impact on other Common Measures





Retention (2nd and 3rd quarter after exit)



Earnings

Retention at 1 year indicator (4th quarter after exit)

Did the participant work and earn any wages during the 1st quarter after their exit quarter? 

Yes (working) =



No (not working) =

Decreases EER



Exclusions =

Increases EER

Increases EER

Entered Employment Rate Definition The number of participants who are employed in the first quarter after the exit quarter divided by

The number of exits minus the number of exclusions

Exclusions Participants who exit for certain reasons are excluded from the formulas used to determine for the performance measures

Exclusions 





EER is effect by unsubsidized exits (in the numerator) and by total number and type of exits (in the denominator) Certain exits are excluded from the Performance Measures Exclusions increase the Entered Employment Rate

Exclusions are Important 



SSAI remains well below the average of National Grantees in EER SSAI has the lowest percentage of excluded exits of any National Grantee even though our total number of unsubsidized exits is similar to AARP (our numerators are the same); it is our denominators that are different.

PY2014 from QPR 

SSAI UE (numerator)

= 1142 UE



EW “ “ (numerator)

= 1387 UE



AARP “ “ (numerator)

=1483 UE

Exclusions are Important 



Continuing to get your UE AND Documenting Excluded Exits is Critical to improving EER Exclusions Can be documented at exit or during follow-up

Exclusions include: 1.

Health or medical reasons

2.

Family has health or medical reasons

3.

Institutionalized, or

4.

Deceased 

Over income is not an exclusion



Voluntary exits are not exclusions

Exclusions 1.) Health or medical reasons 

Participant’s health prevents them from working 

 

Expected to last for at least 90 days

Approved breaks for health beyond policy Probe for more information when a participant wants to ‘resign’ or exit ‘voluntarily’

What If…. 

What if a participant exits for health, but you later find out they are working? 

Could qualify for Entered Employment if the employment occurred within the first 90 days after the participant’s exit. If so,  Change

exit reason in file and SPARQ  Capture EER

Exclusions 2.) Family has health or medical reasons 

Participant is caregiver for an ill family member 

Expected to last for at least 90 days

3.) Institutionalized 

Nursing home, jail, mental health or substance abuse facility 

Expected to remain for at least 90 days

Exclusions 4.) Deceased 

Participant dies while on the program or during the follow-up period Check obituaries  Emergency contacts 

Exclusions 

 



Excluded exits are removed from the denominator of the EER calculation Exclusions are listed on the Exit Forms Documented through self-attest or 3rd party self-attest (forms on SSAI Partner’s Page) Check Data Validation Handbook for required documentation

Documenting Exclusions Is Easy 







One Self Attest Form for 3 of the Excluded Exit Types 3 separate self attest forms for the 3 Excluded Exit Types Third Party Attest Form for all 4 Excluded Exit Types Check Data Validation Handbook for required documentation

What If…. 

What if a participant is on LWOP for Health, Family Care or Institutionalized and was unable to return by the agreed upon time and was exited for cause? 

Could qualify for an Exclusion rather than an exit for cause  If

sufficient documentation was obtained Change exit reason in file and SPARQ  If insufficient documentation at the time of LWOP or exit, can still document Exclusion After exit

Excluded Participants 



If a participant is excluded at the time of exit and does not gain employment within the first 90 days after exit, no further follow-ups are needed. They are not included in the Common Measures formula.

Other Common Measures 



Only those participants who successfully achieve the Entered Employment will be included in the Retention Rate Performance Measure. Only those participants who successfully achieve the Retention will be included in the Average Earnings Performance Measure.

Participants with multiple employers  



UE Form for each job Only one confirmed job needed for the Entered Employment Rate If the participant worked multiple jobs in Quarters 1, 2 or 3 after exit, retention and earnings follow-ups are required for each job.
