You don’t have to set out to create an upskilling program on your own. Workforce Development Boards across the country offer services and support that can help you attract and retain the skilled employees that your business needs.
Teaming up with the National Association of Workforce Boards, UpSkill America developed a new tool that explains just how these organizations can help you. The tool provides an overview of what the public workforce system does and connects you to resources to start taking advantage of its services.
This tool is the latest in a series released in the past year, thanks to a grant from Walmart to support UpSkill America’s work to equip businesses with tools to educate, train, and support frontline workers’ development to advance their careers. The work builds on UpSkill America’s 2017 UpSkilling Playbook for Employers.
