ManpowerGroup Advocates for Master U.S. Job Creation Plan That Leverages Human Age Indicators at Capitol Hill Event ManpowerGroup's Mara Swan Speaks at HR Policy Association's "Blueprint for Jobs in the 21st Century" About Today's Talent Supply/Demand Bottleneck
ManpowerGroup, (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, recommend steps to spur job creation and improve employee retention in the United States today at a critical Capitol Hill event, hosted by the HR Policy Association, a trade group that represents the thought leadership of over 300 top-level human resources executives, including Mara Swan, ManpowerGroup Executive Vice President of Global Strategy and Talent, and an Association Director.
"Blueprint for Jobs in the 21st Century: A Vision for a Competitive Human Resource Policy for the American Workforce," guides lawmakers and institutions through the most critical forces shaping job growth in the country, offering recommendations on education, workforce development, immigration, regulatory reform, and health care. In its entirety, the blueprint maps the restoration of job growth and competitiveness in the U.S.
Swan will speak on a panel about specific blueprint recommendations and also highlight fresh findings from ManpowerGroup's global research that affirm indicators of today's Human Age, such as a chronic talent shortage, are driving the need for greater public-private collaboration in the effort to create jobs and the right training for existing workers and untapped talent.
"This blueprint rightfully affirms that we are facing a supply-demand bottleneck, as employers tell us they are forced to select workers from a pool of candidates lacking relevant qualifications and experience," Swan said. "Despite high unemployment nationwide, companies continue to be frustrated by their inability to find the people with the right skills to drive business growth. This underscores our nation's over-supply of available workers, and under-supply of qualified talent which places the country's economic growth in jeopardy."
The panel also includes J. Randall MacDonald, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for IBM Michael Davis, Senior Vice President of Global Human Resources for General Mills, Inc. Martin Neil Baily, Senior Fellow, Economic Studies, Brookings Institution Chairman, Council of Economic Advisers (1999-2001) and Neera Tanden, Chief Operating Officer, Center for American Progress Director of Domestic Policy, Obama-Biden Campaign. The panel is moderated by Jeff McGuinness, President & CEO, HR Policy Association.
