Repeat Business Customer
Percentage of employers who have used WIOA core program services more than once during the last three reporting periods
The total number of establishments, as defined by Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program, served during the current reporting period (i.e., one program year) and that during the prior three reporting periods have used core program services more than once DIVIDED by the number of establishments, as defined by BLS QCEW, served during the current reporting period.
This measure is a unique count of employers who use WIOA core programs more than once. Regardless of the incidence of repeat usage of WIOA core program services, an employer who uses WIOA core program services more than once during the last three reporting periods should be counted only once in this calculation.
Note: The reporting period for this indicator is a program year (July 1 through June 30).
Note: As this indicator is implemented, it is the Departments’ intent to look forward until three program years’ worth of data become available. The Departments are not requiring States to use data for services delivered to employers prior to July 2016 to fulfill the prior three reporting periods’ requirement.
For this measure, States must report on data elements E1 and E2 as shown in Attachment 4, Table A - Effectiveness in Serving Employers Specifications. Please note that for employers with more than one physical location, the QCEW reports each work site as a separate establishment, and therefore, the total number of business establishments receiving services should be counted this way.
Attachment 4, Table B also includes definitions for the different categories of “Core Program Services” that may be counted when calculating levels of performance for the effectiveness in serving employers indicator. For example, a placement through title IV would fall under the “Worker Recruitment Assistance” category and would therefore count as a core program service.

Overview of the BLS QCEW Program
The QCEW program publishes a quarterly count of employment and wages reported by employers covering 98 percent of U.S. jobs, available at the county, Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), State and national levels by industry. The Departments consider this data, collected from the States, to be an accurate count of the total work sites in a given State or county.
