The RTWBC would like to thank all those who participated and all those who joined us both in person and online for our third in a series of Employer Leadership Roundtables as we promoted the business case for employers to implement more inclusive hiring practices.
Keynote Speaker: Chuck Edward, Head of Global Talent Acquisition, Microsoft
Your connection to skilled LTU workers
People who want to work and who can
contribute to your business are not
getting through the HR gatekeepers.
Who Are These People?
“Ready to work” is a subset of the U.S. labor market who have been reskilled or upskilled and are looking for employment.
- People with disabilities
- Opportunity youth
- The underemployed
- The long-term unemployed (LTU)
Your business can benefit from this pool of skilled labor.
What You Can Do
EMPLOYERS can make hiring the ready to work a C-suite priority.
WORKFORCE INTERMEDIARIES can help bridge the gap between employees and employers.
POLICY MAKERS AND GRANT MAKERS can help us better understand the issue and recommend standards.
