The New Business Imperative: The Training, Retraining, and Upskilling of the American workforce

Back Bay C

BLS data indicate there are currently more than 6 million job openings that employers cannot fill. According to a recent McKinsey survey, a majority of executives believe that investing in the retraining and “upskilling” of U.S. workers is an urgent business priority—and they also believe that this is an issue where corporations, not governments, must take the lead. The American Staffing Association board of directors agrees and ASA is working to ensure that industry members are on the front lines of creating and supporting work-based learning programs to train, retrain, and upskill American workers. In this session, we will present case studies of what leading staffing firms are doing on their own and in partnerships with clients, educational organizations, and the government to address and close the growing talent gap. You will come away with some specific ideas about programs that will enhance your firm’s value proposition with candidates, employees, and clients.
