Discussions at the June meeting will include updates toward achieving the four main goals announced at the inaugural meeting of the Advisory Board: • Develop a Campaign to Promote Multiple Pathways to Career Success. Companies, workers, parents, and policymakers have traditionally assumed that a university degree is the best, or only, path to a middle-class career. Employers and job seekers should be aware of multiple career pathways and skill development opportunities outside of traditional 4year degrees. • Increase Data Transparency to Better Match American Workers with American Jobs. High-quality, transparent, and timely data can significantly improve the ability of employers, students, job seekers, education providers, and policymakers to make informed choices about education and employment—especially for matching education and training programs to in-demand jobs and the skills needed to fill them. • Modernize Candidate Recruitment and Training Practices. Employers often struggle to fill job vacancies, yet their hiring practices may actually reduce the pool of qualified job applicants. To acquire a talented workforce, employers must better identify the skills needed for specific jobs and communicate those needs to education providers, job seekers, and students. • Measure and Encourage Employerled Training Investments. The size, PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 scope, and impacts of education and skills training investments are still not fully understood. There is a lack of consistent data on company balance sheets and in federal statistics. Business and policy makers need to know how much is spent on training, the types of workers receiving training, and the longterm value of the money and time spent in classroom and on-the-job training.
