UpSkill America is an employer-led movement to expand opportunity for America’s workers and allow our economy and communities to thrive. As part of our mission to advance the upskilling movement, we are pleased to share the following news featuring one of our partners.
CareerSTAT’s healthcare leaders selected four healthcare employers as 2017 Frontline Healthcare Worker Champions and seven organizations as Emerging Champions. An employer-led initiative of the National Fund for Workforce Solutions, CareerSTAT is a network of almost 200 healthcare and workforce leaders promoting investment in the skills and careers of frontline workers. They support healthcare organizations in developing, scaling, and sustaining development programs by: engaging healthcare leaders in peer-learning, documenting effective workforce development programs and policies, studying the business impact of workforce investments, providing technical assistance on program development, and recognizing Champion organizations.
Now in its fourth year, CareerSTAT’s recognition program showcases healthcare organizations making exemplary investments in their frontline workforce. This year’s 2017 CareerSTAT Frontline Worker Champions—Hebrew SeniorLife, Mercy Hospitals, Ochsner Health System and University Health System—are prime examples of how training and skills development can benefit employees and employers. The seven Emerging Champions are investing in their frontline employees, but striving to expand, sustain or evaluate their programs. CareerSTAT is offering the Emerging Champions targeted technical assistance to strengthen their programs. Click here to learn more.
