Issues Impacting Workforce Development in the U.S.
SSAI recognizes that the issues our workforce movement must address are wide-ranging and often complicated. Not only must we be state-of-the-art in workforce development, but also fully engaged with aging issues, economic conditions, workplace culture, business trends, and relevant laws and regulations at the local, state, and federal levels.
Part of SSAI’s mission is to strengthen workforce development efforts across the U.S. through collaboration, education, and innovation. After all, aging, employment, and the economy are issues which touch all our lives.
