Burning Glass Technologies Report on Health Informatics

Health care reform depends on the better management of medical information—“health informatics”—yet the labor market is not keeping up with the demand for workers with these skills. A recent Accenture employer survey on middle-skill jobs found that health care employers consider medical coders—the largest health informatics occupation—to be one of their hardest-to-fill positions. According to “Missed Opportunities? - The Labor Market in Health Informatics,”a Burning Glass Technologies analysis of job postings nationwide, health informatics jobs remain open longer than many others, a clear sign that employers struggle to fill these positions.

Harvard Business School, Burning Glass Technologies and
Accenture Release Report on Middle Skills Jobs

The decline of middle-skill jobs is hurting both U.S. competitiveness and the middle class—and business should take the lead in turning that around, according to a new report from Accenture, Burning Glass Technologies, and Harvard Business School.

Bridge the Gap: Rebuilding America’s Middle Skills, uses Burning Glass labor market analytics, along with research from Accenture and the U.S. Competitiveness Project at Harvard, to identify the middle-skills jobs that are crucial for American competitiveness—the first report to do so.

US Chamber of Commerce Releases White Paper on
Talent Pipeline Management

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation (USCCF) is engaging employers and their partners across the country in developing a new demand-driven approach—talent pipeline management—to close the skills gap. Through extending lessons learned from innovations in supply chain management, this white paper is a call for employers to play a new and expanded leadership role as “end-customers” of education and workforce partnerships.

In this new framework, employers should view themselves as “end customers” of education and workforce partnerships, with an opportunity to strengthen their workforce by working with academic institutions as their "suppliers." The paper highlights case studies from College for America, other educational institutions, and employers, illustrating that this approach is already yielding positive results for employers and educators alike.

The Aspen Institute and Urban Institute Release
First Year Review of Accelerating Opportunity

The First Year of Accelerating Opportunity: Implementation from the States and Colleges documents how AO colleges and states designed and implemented the core elements of the AO model, which include contextualized, integrated and accelerated learning, and for-credit career pathways that provide valued occupational credentials.

CLASP Resources for WIOA Implementation

Three months after the president signed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) — the law guiding the nation’s employment, training, adult education, and vocational rehabilitation programs, it’s time to look toward implementation.

While there is a great deal of information available on WIOA, very few resources address how best to serve low-income individuals with low skills and other barriers to employment. To help meet this need, CLASP has created a resource page highlighting promising state and local strategies and models that align WIOA's goals and help create pathways to postsecondary and economic success for youth and adults with low skills.
