GOAL 2: Close the Gap

Employers will commit to reviewing the evidence-based interventions in the Council’s report, conduct a self-assessment of any interventions they have already implemented internally, and implement or undertake to improve three interventions tailored to their workplace.

Examples of Potential Measures by Employer:
  • Assessment of Current State

  • Enhancements to Existing Interventions

  • Introduction of New Implemented Interventions

GOAL 3: Evaluate Success

Employers commit to participating in a biennial review to discuss successes and challenges, as well as contribute data to a report compiled by a third-party on the Compact’s success to date.

Employer-level data would not be identified in the report. The specific data to be reported will build on data already required by federal and state authorities and should not create an additional reporting burden.
