Helping Human Resource Professionals by Starting Early
Strengthening the Workforce Pipeline Through Investments in Early Childhood—and Beyond
Companies across a range of industries struggle to find workers with the right skills and training for in-demand jobs. Aligning high school and postsecondary education to meet the needs of employers is important to closing this skills gap, but so is starting early. The first five years of life have a tremendous impact on children’s development into successful adults. Smart investments in high-quality early childhood care and education can help strengthen our workforce so that companies are better equipped to compete in the global economy.
Investing in children and youth is critical to strengthening our workforce. ReadyNation has been an invaluable resource and partner in these efforts.
