The need has never been greater for skilling across America. While employers have felt the need to reskill and upskill their workforces for some time, the events of 2020 have only served to accelerate training and development, with businesses rushing to find talent with the right skills to succeed in the new normal.
As a global leader in staffing and HR solutions, we believe it's our responsibility to continually improve the work lives and productivity of our clients. With so many Americans out of work as a result of COVID-19, we believe it's not just the right thing to do, but necessary in getting us all one step closer to succeeding in the new world of work.
