The right approach for closing the skills gap.
We have people without jobs, and jobs without people. Today, 50% of open, available positions in this country go unfilled, because the candidates aren’t available. At the same time, 40% of businesses can’t take on more work…because they can’t fill the jobs they have. Traditional education and career pathways weren't designed to develop skills for a fast-changing market or to match the speed of changing industry requirements.
The demands of today's economy require a strategic alignment between classroom and career.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Talent Pipeline ManagementTM (TPM) initiative is a workforce strategy for our time that can meet the needs of today’s changing business environment. The TPM AcademyTM builds on this foundation to train state and local leaders, business associations, employers, and economic development agencies to drive partnerships with their education and training providers based on need.
