How are technological innovations affecting workforce development? This chapter of Investing in America’s Workforce: Improving Outcomes for Workers and Employers examines the lack of digital access among low-income and rural communities and concludes that workers require a new kind of employment preparation and access to lifelong training.
The chapter is part of Investing in America’s Workforce: Improving Outcomes for Workers and Employers, which will be released on November 9, 2018. The book includes the voices of over 100 contributing authors who share research, best practices, and resources on workforce development. The project is a result of a two-and-a-half-year collaboration of the Federal Reserve System, Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University, the Ray Marshall Center at the University of Texas at Austin, and the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research. See www.investinwork.org for more information on the initiative and the upcoming book release.
