Getting Ahead at Work: 
President Obama’s Upskill Initiative

(Whitehouse.gov) The Upskill Initiative is a public-private effort meant to create clear pathways for the more than 20 million workers in front-line jobs that too often lack opportunities to progress into higher-paying jobs. Developing the skills and abilities of these workers, and empowering them to contribute more at work, presents a significant opportunity to improve their wages and to increase the productivity and competitiveness of employers.

Earlier this year the President called on businesses to help workers of all ages earn a shot at better, higher-paying jobs, even if they lack a higher education. Already, more than 100 employers – who employ more than 5 million American workers – are stepping up to expand their use of best practices that increase opportunity:

 

  • Increase access to training by growing apprenticeships, building on the largest growth in over a decade, and expanding on-the-job training that equips workers with skills to advance to better jobs
  • Motivate and empower more uptake of training opportunities by making it cheaper and faster to get ahead
  • Provide a clear path upward for employees who develop and demonstrate skills

 

American businesses are creating these jobs of the future at a breakneck pace, and we need to ensure that American employees have the right skills to fill them.

Check out the stories of everyday Americans who “upskilled” their way to a higher-paying jobs and a brighter future thanks to a flexible learning opportunities in their companies.
