“Skills, Training, and The Future of Work: A Perspective From the United States”
What skills will be needed as the contours of the labor market shift and how will they be delivered? This talk will address these questions drawing upon data and fieldwork regarding employer labor demands and employment practices as well as the performance of training institutions. In addition, the talk will discuss the first results from a new and original national survey that provides hitherto unavailable insight into how American workers obtain workplace skills over their careers. The talk will conclude by discussing policy options for moving forward.
