WORK: Thriving in a Turbulent, Technological and Transformed Global Economy reviews long-term trends affecting the U.S. labor market, and the challenges and opportunities they present for America's workers. It also looks across a multitude of Council initiatives and reports to highlight some of the many recommendations to strengthen America's workforce that emerged from this body of research, analysis and dialogue between U.S. business, education, technology and labor leaders.
These recommendations offer a roadmap to align U.S. education and training to 21st century skills needs, leverage intellectual capital more effectively, supply businesses with the talent needed to compete globally and enable America's most valuable competitive asset - its people - to apply their creativity and effort toward productive, prosperous lives.
