U.S. business leaders continue to report struggles with hiring prepared and skilled employees. At a time when the baby boom generation is approaching retirement, businesses require an exceptional pipeline of new workers to continue American traditions of innovation and productivity.
With that understanding, Corporate Voices has significantly deepened our workforce readiness body of work. This initiative spans the talent pipeline and follows the stages of an individual’s education, training, and career—starting in early childhood, and continuing through their schooling, hiring, and into their mature worker years. Corporate Voices believes that employers can and must be active partners in preparing a talent pipeline of skilled employees, while helping young people succeed in school, on the job, and throughout life.
In recognition of our leadership in this space, we have secured investments that support the following three major workforce readiness initiatives:
- Enterprising Pathways to Develop Untapped Talent
- Learn & Earn: Postsecondary Education Completion
- Ready by 21 National Partnership, Credentialed by 26
These initiatives are distinct but mutually reinforcing. They provide a tremendous range of opportunities for our partner companies to showcase innovative business practices, learn from other business leaders, participate in research design and educate policy makers.
