Elevating Business Engagement: Beyond Preparing the Job Seeker
Preparing job seekers to get them “employment ready” with the skills to meet the needs of businesses and industry is at the core of workforce development. However, WIOA provides the workforce system with the flexibility to elevate our game and position ourselves within regional markets to engage business as a customer (with business services), as a partner (in sector strategies, apprenticeships, work-based learning) and even as a funder (to invest and leverage). “It’s not about business learning workforce development; it’s about us learning business and translating that into our vernacular and our world—I think this is critical,” said NAWB President/CEO Ron Painter in a recent video that focuses on WIOA and Business U.
Join Ron Painter for the Workforce Central Radio show at 1:00 PM EST on Wednesday, February 18th, as he interviews the executive leadership team from Business U in an exciting discussion about how workforce boards can make these key shifts to elevate business engagement in their regions.

Beginning in the 1980’s, with the increased awareness of the changing demographics of the U.S. workforce, diversity entered the workplace vocabulary to describe all the things that make us human, both differences and similarities, and may impact performance and productivity. Now, some thirty years later we as a society continue to struggle with various dimensions of diversity, including race, gender, generational differences in values and work ethic, sexual orientation, religion political affiliation, and basic values. Corporations now talk about employee engagement and inclusion, instead of managing diversity per se, and still find it difficult to attract and retain the best and brightest talent. Our discussion will focus on the past, present and future of living and working with one another as human beings, and where we seem to be headed.
