Reframing Workforce Development Efforts as Investments

A new initiative, Investing in America's Workforce: Improving Outcomes for Workers and Employers, aims to connect businesses, government, nonprofit, and philanthropic organizations to rethink policy and investments, attract new resources, and improve economic mobility for workers. The initiative is a collaboration of the Federal Reserve System with the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University, the Ray Marshall Center for the Study of Human Resources at the University of Texas at Austin, and the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research.
