‘The Close It Summit’ Focuses on Strategies to Close the Skills Gap

Corporate leaders, human resource strategists and policy experts will join the inaugural Close It Summit today in Washington to discuss training strategies designed to prepare the nation’s workforce with the skills needed to drive businesses ahead of the global competition.

The three-day summit is presented by Innovate+Educate, an organization that focuses on advancing policies for education and workforce development.

Later today, ThomasNet News Career Journal will be on the scene to report on such sessions as “The Role of Foundations in Closing the Skills Gap” and “To What Degrees Matter: A Round Robin Debate.”

Innovate+Educate and U.S. News & World Report are scheduled tomorrow to recognize five companies with HIRE awards, which were created to recognize nationwide employers that have “implemented innovations in their hiring and training process to close the U.S. skills gap.” The winners include AmeriHealth Caritas, Bank of America, Boeing, Gilchrist Construction Company and Southwire.
