In a new blog, HR Policy Senior Advisor Jaime Fall notes the progress on the Aspen Institute's UpSkill America program, which recognizes employers, including many member companies, for their efforts. Mr. Fall notes: "Two years ago, the HR Policy Association and the Aspen Institute partnered on an initiative, allowing me the opportunity to serve as Director of UpSkill America, a part of the Economic Opportunities Program at the Aspen Institute while continuing as Senior Advisor to the Association. At UpSkill America, we focus on recognizing employers who invest in the skills of their frontline workers and promoting the adoption of policies and practices that increase economic opportunity. In these two years, the UpSkill America movement has grown from the original 150 employers who attended the White House Upskilling Summit to a network of nearly 5,000 businesses and organizations interested in the education, training and development of frontline workers so they can gain the skills they need to advance in the workplace."
