• Training for upward mobility with a comprehensive workforce development policy in place

In addition to the Workforce Congress itself, attendees will join an elite set of discussions with:

• Chief executive officer-Emeritus of Deloitte and renowned author Jim Quigley
• Author, researcher, and architect of pending legislation on job growth Brink Lindsey from the Kauffman Foundation
• U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education Barbara Dann-Messier

“As countries and companies fight to come out of the recession, what actions do corporate senior HR officers and government entities need to take—singularly and collectively—to ensure that we have the high quality workforce necessary to generate sustained growth and productivity?” said Elliot Clark, chief executive officer of SharedXpertise, producers of the HRO Today Forum. “We’ve created the Workforce Congress to aggressively address these issues and create solutions.”

The output of the Workforce Congress will drive focused activities and research over the coming months, leading up to a second Workforce Congress at the COMMIT!Forum on October 2-3 in New York City, where this group will reconvene to share insights and results as they determine next steps.
