Participate in National Workforce Development Month

Workforce | September 03, 2019 | by Susan Hildebrandt

LeadingAge is hosting a social media campaign around workforce to celebrate "National Workforce Development Month" during September.

Workforce is a critical issue for all LeadingAge members. According to a recent report, we will need 2.5 million more people working in LTSS by 2030 to keep up with the growth in America’s aging population.

In an effort to build awareness around recruiting and developing skilled staff for the aging services field, this September, LeadingAge will launch its debut Workforce Development Month campaign.

Each week, LeadingAge will focus on a different theme around workforce. We welcome you to join us in building awareness around these topics:

  1. Week 1: Research from the LTSS Center
  2. Week 2: The Careers that Love You Back program developed by LeadingAge Ohio
  3. Week 3: Key articles from the LeadingAge magazine issue on workforce
  4. Week 4: Grassroots Advocacy and National Call-in Day on Sept. 26

We know that this is our members' number one issue, and we want to build awareness and promote the variety of jobs in our field. Learn more about how you and your members can participate.
