TALENT | WORKFORCE INFORMATION AND RESOURCES

CIRT is undertaking an initiative to gather information and provide potential avenues upon which firms can share information and point potentially interested parties to, so as to retain their interests in these important fields.

July 2, 2019 - A new report, by Opportunity America, examines programs that could become eligible for federal financial aid – An Unknown Landscape: Short-Term Job-Focused College Programs.  The Report’s principal finding: there is strong demand for short job-focused programs among students and employers. Educators on eight subject campuses said their offerings are meeting local labor market need but far from satisfying it, and if additional federal funding were available, more could be done to train workers for local jobs.  [See, CIRT story on related legislative matters].   [RESOURCE re: "Workforce Pell" Grants]

“Safe + Sound,” OSHA's year-round campaign to encourage every workplace to have a safety and health program, includes both employers and workers.  Employers are encouraged to participate in quarterly events to develop effective safety and health programs in their workplaces. Participants can learn about best practices during webinars and put them into action during the 30-day challenges. These events also focus on management leadership, worker involvement, as well as finding and fixing hazards. CIRT member firms can share their safety successes during Safe + Sound Week (August 12-18, 2019).  If interested, sign up on the Safe + Sound website.
