    The VA's Homeless Veterans Community Employment Services (HVCES) program helps homeless veterans re-enter the workforce and is a valuable community partner for workforce development organizations.

"This unique population is highly motivated and actually has a varied skill set from which employers can benefit," shared Dr. Carma Heitzmann, Director of VA's HVCES program. "Getting formerly homeless veterans into gainful employment and supporting them during that critical first year back in the labor force increases their success in both the workforce and in maintaining their housing status."  In this Workforce Central radio show from the National Association of Workforce Boards, President/CEO Ron Painter interviews Dr. Heitzmann to share the details of the HVCES program and how workforce development organizations can form partnerships and engage locally assigned Community Employment Coordinators to successfully place formerly homeless veterans into employment.

    Why the Best Recruitment Means Smarter Workforce Marketing

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live in the New Year on Wednesday, January 13, 2016, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about how to create the ultimate hiring experience, and this week we’re going to talk about why the best recruitment means smarter workforce marketing.


    Today’s hiring economy is highly complex and competitive and finding top talent is harder than ever. If fact, attracting candidates and retaining current employees is a lot like attracting and retaining customers.


    Candidates want to be valued and have an engaging and transparent experience and how you treat them has a direct impact on your brand. In today’s digital age, where people share experiences online, a poor candidate experience can be bad for business and translate to millions in lost revenue annually. 


    The fact is we are all job seekers and perpetual candidates, even if we’re currently happily employed. And candidates are the hiring organization’s to lose before they even think about applying for a job. 


    Today both employers and candidates alike are responsible for creating and marketing their brands — which can give both a symbiotic and differentiating competitive edge.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about why the best recruitment means smarter workforce marketing with this week’s guest: Abby Euler, Talent Acquisition Evangelist at IBM Smarter Workforce.


    Thank you to all the TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!

    In the BULLPEN with Dr. T

    in Youth

     


    From President Reagan's A Nation At Risk report to President Obama's Race To The Top, the American Public School system has undergone over 30 years of reform.  From the infusion of testing, vouchers to charter schools, the landscape of the public school system is changing.  Is it for the better?  Has it made a difference in student learning outcomes or for improving teaching conditions?  Where is the public school system heading?


    Dr. Walter C. Farrell enters the "BULLPEN" with Dr. T to discuss the scope of changes, their meaning, and policies as it relates to the current and future structure of the American education system.


    Dr. Walter C. Farrell, Jr., is professor of social work and a fellow in the Center for Urban and Regional Studies (CURS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research interests include the study of minority economic development issues, demographic change and inter-ethnic conflict in contemporary society, the privatization and “charterization” of public education, workforce diversity, and urban social policy. He has appeared on the Today Show with Matt Lauer and National Public Radio’s The Connection to discuss public school privatization, and he has lectured to parent, teacher, and union groups throughout the nation.

    Bernie Sanders in Huntington, West Virginia

    in Politics

    "This campaign is going as well as it is, with the extraordinary energy and enthusiasm we are generating all across this country," Sanders said. "Look at this room here tonight, we have over 6,000 people. The reason we are generating this enthusiasm is because we are doing something very unusual in contemporary American politics. We are telling the truth."Sanders looked to capture the state's vote and its 29 delegates in his speech, during which he played to the state's economic and social woes, many of which he said were similar to the plights being suffered by citizens throughout the country.Sanders pointed out West Virginia's workforce participation rate, which is the lowest in the country, noting that 53 percent of adults in the state who are eligible to work actually have jobs.Herald-Dispatch LACIE PIERSON
