Michael Mandel from Progressive Policy Institute and Jonathan Rothwell from the Brookings Institution and will present on their recent findings on What's Working (and What's Not) in the US Labor Market. Where do the real mismatches lie and what are the implications?

In this webcast, we’ll explore:

  • “Opportunities for those with the least education are often in the metro area labor markets with the most education,” says Rothwell.
  • How much do mismatches in supply and demand for educated workers boosts U.S. unemployment? And how does the mismatch effect trends in industry demand and housing markets?
  • How are the top 100 metro areas doing in terms of opportunities for college graduates? For high school graduates?
  • Love all those new Apps for your phone? How many jobs have they created?
  • “The App economy is simultaneously global, local, and intensely personal . . . it looks like nothing we have seen before,” says Mandel.
  • Opportunities and challenges for the year ahead

Audience: If you are a human resources leader, or professional responsible for Human Capital Analytics, Labor Markets, Strategic Workforce Planning, Workforce Readiness, Strategic Initiatives participating in this webcast will help you address your most pressing labor market issues. Labor Market economists are strongly encouraged to participate.
