2017 WORKFORCE FORUM

SAVE THE DATE: August 2017, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas

The three nations of North America enjoy a significant degree of economic integration that sustains and strengthens the global competitiveness, labor productivity, and prosperity of each nation. This economic integration facilitates the development of supply chains that open possibilities for cost control and innovation for the enterprises of the region.

However, business leaders, particularly in the manufacturing and logistics sectors, have pointed out the lack of standards for training and certification of workers that are valid at the regional level. The lack of regional standards makes supply chain management more difficult, raising production costs and reducing productivity. 

Help us implement policy recommendations as we address this skills gap to keep North America economically competitive by strengthening North American talent pipelines.
