What’s the issue with Workforce Development

Since the 1950’s, organizations have used a version of the same industrial “assembly line” workforce development solution. This solution has remained largely stagnant while the people, culture, and technology have grown in complexity. In talking with over 200 c-suite and political leaders from across the country nearly all listed workforce development among their top 3 unsolved organizational problems.

People

Must be engaged regardless of location, status, or background.

Culture

Must acknowledge and embrace critical importance of blue collar, white collar, and new-collar careers in the workforce

Technology

Must be seen as a tool not a solution for workforce development

Which of these key areas of workforce development are of greatest concern to you and your organization?
