In workforce development, we often focus on improvements in human capital as the best way to help people get jobs. We put all our energy into building hard and soft skills. While this is important, it leaves out social capital, which is often more helpful to people in job search. Social capital in workforce terms refers to the connections people have with other individuals that can help them get jobs and advance in the world of work. Find out how three employment programs helped low income people build their social capital as part of the pathway to employment. Click here to see the report Networking for Low Income Populations.


Most people working in the workforce system do not know much about helping women get into skilled blue collar jobs. This lack of knowledge can mean that women are often inadvertently steered toward jobs that are paying much less, without benefits and do not have a career ladder instead of being exposed to careers in the skilled trades.  If you want to be a well informed employment counselor that can help women consider this career option you should get a free subscription to Pride and a Paycheck newsletter (www.PrideandaPaycheck.com). Pride and a Paycheck is a unique newsletter with very helpful information and resources about women in the nontraditional blue collar trades. To get your free subscription click here.


The least desirable part of being a manager is dealing with someone that has behavior, performance or attitude problems. Many managers shy away from directly dealing with these issues in their early stages, which is a huge mistake. It's important to remember that when you are having a problem with this person, it's often their coworkers that are having problems as well. The problems the coworkers experience may even be more of a hassle to them than these problems are to you because they are experiencing them many times in a day. One of the top reasons employees give for leaving organizations is that management failed to address problems with their coworkers. So if you want to help the troubled employee get on track and avoid losing some of your star performers, follow the advice in this article. Click here for more information.
