Many workforce development programs and policies have made strides in improving economic opportunities for workers and their employers. However, these initiatives are often small, local in scope and have limited ability to scale to meet the needs in the broader labor force. This webinar will discuss several innovations and frameworks that can provide insight into how to build on these successes through innovations in financing mechanisms, data use and information processes.
In this webinar, three authors will discuss highlights from their contributions to Volume 1 of Investing in America’s Workforce: Improving Outcomes for Workers and Employers. The goal of this publication is to reframe workforce development efforts as investments that provide returns to workers, businesses, and their communities as a whole.
