Engaging 2,000 Employers in Industry Partnerships
With 70 operating industry partnerships in 2017, the National Fund is actively supporting 2,000 business leaders in collectively addressing their industries’ labor and skill needs. Through industry partnerships, employers define long- and short-term labor needs, communicate high-demand skills to local educators, invest in their employees and new-hires, and discuss business practices that improve business performance.
In addition to its industry partnerships, the National Fund operates CareerSTAT—a national network of healthcare leaders promoting the skill development and career advancement of frontline workers. With more than 100 employer members and dozens of partners, CareerSTAT recognizes organizations making significant investments in their employees, researches and promotes best practices for frontline investments, and documents the business impact of investing in frontline workers.
