Creating Cohorts of Employers to “Jump the Chasm”

WEDNESDAY 3:00 PM – 4:15 PM

Grads of Life and FSG’s Talent Rewire initiative facilitate and support learning communities of employers and workforce partners interested in innovative best practices in recruitment, retention, and advancement of populations facing barriers to employment. Learn about a diagnostic tool that is being developed to assess what effective employer practices look like, and the particular interventions/offerings both organizations have developed to help employers achieve those practices. Also learn how they have engaged large and mid-sized employers to hire and retain Opportunity Youth by using “seven-second resumes,” supervisor training, and other strategies, and how these learnings are being adapted to serve all job seekers and incumbent workers.
