For years, the talent acquisition and HR community has talked about the skills shortage. Yet it seemed there was little we could do to help prepare the future workforce.
Then we learned about SkillsUSA, a partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. And we thought, we want to get behind this effort.
This is why Recruiting Trends Conference 2013 is supporting SkillsUSA, a national nonprofit organization serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical, and skilled service occupations, including health occupations.
The skills shortage is real, and it has widespread implications for recruiting and business success. However, thanks to SkillsUSA, the issue can be addressed.
When the talent acquisition and HR community helps young people acquire the skills they need to succeed, we help our profession, the employers we support, and the community at large. Together, we really can make a difference.
