Strategic Alignment of Public (WIB) and Private (Corporate HR) Workforce Development Strategies and Resources Chuck Flacks, Director of Research and Policy, San Diego Workforce Partnership HR Focus Group Summary CWA Meeting of the Minds September 8, 2007, 4PM
Biggest Challenges Getting employers to pull trigger and hire HR Departments too reactive, not strategic Commitment by employers to training Employee retention and engagement Management commitment to employees Hiring youth millennials
Role of Workforce System One-Stops are key: Source of referrals (diversity, pre-trained, targeted) Good place to refer laid-off employees Safe place to train incumbent workers On the Job and Customized Training
Recommendations from HR Communication – make crystal clear what it is we do Alignment between private sector (placement agencies) and public sector workforce systems Focus on incumbent workers – ladders and lattices Help industries understand benefits of training for the future
What Should WIBs Know About HR? HR often low on totem pole in companies Needs change more frequently than training is available Human resource planning (and workforce system) are often too reactive – strategic planning needed.
