Workforce Readiness
 Workforce Readiness

According to the Society for Human Resource Management, Workforce Readiness can be defined as ensuring that today’s and tomorrow’s workforce has the skills, competencies and behaviors to succeed in today’s and tomorrow’s workplace. SHRM Jacksonville is committed to helping HR Professionals across Northeast Florida and their employers to successfully address the ever-changing workplace environment and the challenges they face, as the result of rapid economic, social and technological advances that affect current and future employees. Our goal is to assist our community partners to prepare perspective employees through public schools, vocation and technical colleges, adult education, mentoring, job shadowing and continuous professional development. It is imperative that we maintain open and collaborative relationships with our local businesses, local, state and the federal government as well as our educators and the community.
