Jobs for the Unemployed: Issues Update with Peter Cappelli

Tuesday, January 28, 2014 ~ 1:00 - 1:30 PM EST

Analysis of the recent jobs report shows a continued rise in the number of unemployed workers who have stopped looking for work.  How does the increase in ‘discouraged workers’ indicate changes in the labor market, and what does this mean for the larger issues of long-term unemployment and youth unemployment?  Further, how has the ‘skills gap’ – whether real or perceived – changed the way that employers are recruiting and hiring, and how can workforce organizations continue to engage employers and help them be realistic about the types of workers that are available?  Join Workforce Central host and NAWB CEO Ron Painter as he interviews Dr. Peter Cappelli, author of Why Good People Can’t Get Jobs, and Director of Wharton's Center for Human Resources, for a discussion of his views on these critical workforce issues. Join us on Tuesday, January 28th at 1:00 PM EST and gain new insights on how workforce development organizations can keep moving the needle for the long-term unemployed.

Want to continue the conversation? Join NAWB for Forum 2014: Dialogue for Workforce Excellence, held March 29 – April 1 in Washington, DC. Visit www.nawb.org/Forum for details.
