Job Quality Tools Library


The Aspen Institute Economic Opportunities Program developed this Job Quality Tools Library to support leaders working in a variety of fields related to economic opportunity to engage in practical action to improve jobs. The library offers tools, resources, and guidance to help leaders adopt practices to strengthen job quality in their own organizations, in the businesses they partner with, and across labor markets. Browse the library through the stacks below, or visit our Index to view tools by field of practice.

This Job Quality Tools Library was made possible with generous support from Prudential Financial. We are grateful to Prudential for their steadfast support of the Economic Opportunities Program’s work to build a job quality field of practice. The Job Quality Tools Library would not be possible without the inspiring work of many organizations that have shared their job quality tools and resources and whose work is featured here. We also thank the many organizational leaders who responded to our survey and other requests for input and shared their job quality approaches, needs, and ideas with us. We hope all will find the library a valuable resource.

The curation, descriptions, and navigating text for tools and resources are the responsibility of the Aspen Institute Economic Opportunities Program staff and do not necessarily reflect the views of Prudential Financial.
