This study used two randomized controlled trials to test whether sending emails and offering different financial incentives to Oregon early childhood education (ECE) workforce members increased career lattice sign-up and increased education and training levels or workplace retention. The findings suggest that low-touch interventions such as emails have promise for increasing training hours but are not sufficient to induce changes in career lattice sign-up, continuing postsecondary education, or workplace retention for Oregon ECE workforce members.
