Recent findings by PEW research show that overall employment in US public higher education has fallen 13.7% since February 2020. A few states are seeing losses in excess of 20%. This is worse than most other major industries. Enrollment teams that were already competitively pressured are now being challenged to accomplish more with fewer resources and a leaner staff. Fortunately, you can invest in tools that both generate a positive ROI and significantly improve the effectiveness of your existing team in this era of furloughs and budget cuts.
Taylor University was facing a similar problem back in 2017. The admissions staff was struggling to traverse an expanding prospect pool while operating with 3 fewer full-time employees. By leveraging the power of predictive analytics they were able to dissect the pool and focus their limited resources on reaching students with the best-predicted potential of advancing through the funnel. Not only were they able to cover the workload, but they found that the number of meaningful conversations with prospects had increased six-fold.
Providing actionable insights and guidance to drive the daily workflow of the group at Taylor increased effectiveness while reducing the stress associated with being overextended.
