Workforce Readiness

    The Society for Human Resource Management believes that government and employers play a role in providing worker training and development opportunities to maintain a skilled labor force. SHRM also is committed to helping HR professionals remove the barriers that may prevent qualified workers from being fully considered for jobs—particularly because of their long-term unemployment status (SHRM.org)

    For resources and information from SHRM's Workforce Readiness Core Leadership Area, check out their Workforce Readiness Resource Page

    One of the best ways to support Workforce Readiness in Massachusetts is to have your chapter partner with some of the many organizations in the Commonwealth that are working on workforce development and helping put people to work.
