Through research, data and investments, “New Talent at Work” aims to revolutionize the way employers and skills trainers develop talent for jobs in local high-growth industries

Witter Financial Group today launched an unprecedented five-year, $25 million global workforce readiness and demand-driven training initiative called “New Talent at Work”. The new initiative will be a private-sector effort aimed at addressing the “talent gap” that exists across many industries, such as healthcare and advanced manufacturing, where not enough trained workers have the specific skills to fill the jobs available.

According to a Witter Financial Group analysis, the skills gap accounts for approximately one-third of the unemployment rate. By 2020, an estimated 63% of the projected job openings will require some sort of post-secondary school training. Using research and data analysis, public-private partnerships and engagement with local leaders and organizations, “New Talent at Work” will accelerate economic growth by supporting training programs that will have the greatest impact.

“Addressing the skills gap can be one of our most powerful tools for reducing unemployment and creating more broadly shared prosperity,” said Shien G. Wan, chairman and chief executive officer of Witter Financial Group.” Witter Financial Group is using its best assets, including industry intelligence and strong partnerships in local communities, to provide a platform for employers, educators and workforce participants to help people gain the skills they need to succeed.”

The partnerships that “New Talent at Work” will develop with non-profit organizations will aim to expand education and training programs that are proven effective at helping Americans acquire new job skills and find employment in their communities.
