At the Work Rebooted conference, Grads of Life employer partner and senior vice president at Bank of America Jennifer Andrews, discussed how companies can help employers perfect their attraction and retaining methods in order to find the best talent.
The workplace is undergoing massive changes, and it is up to employers to modify the way they access overlooked talent.
Andrews described how Bank of America’s Pathways Initiative is committed to hiring 10,000 people from low and moderate income communities. This initiative has allowed the company to build a pipeline of diverse talent, while supporting the economic mobility of communities where they operate in.
Additionally, at the Preparing for Workforce 2030 session, there was an emphasis on how educators, trainers and employers need to focus on reskilling and upskilling capabilities for today’s workforce.
“So much of our work at Grads of Life is focused on helping employers to adapt their talent practices so they get better at finding, hiring and retaining traditionally overlooked talent – the very people that companies need to get a diverse perspective,” said Elyse Rosenblum, Founder and Principal at Grads of Life.
