Worker Prosperity Initiative
These strategies and innovations may be related to programs designed to retrain or reskill workers; strategies to improve traditional and non-traditional educational institutions; innovative apprenticeship systems, sectoral employment programs, and alternative approaches for skill certification; strategies to facilitate worker transitions between occupations and industries; organizational practices that improve productivity, skills, earnings, or employment prospects; opportunities in alternative work arrangements; and the impact/opportunity of changing transportation modalities.
We work with nonprofits, government and industry leaders, academic researchers, and other organizations to understand what questions matter most to them and help them use rigorous evaluation to generate evidence on priority research questions related today’s rapidly shifting labor market.
