Leadership in Action

U.S. corporations play a vital role in American society as engines of creativity, innovation and economic opportunity. The long-term success of these companies and the U.S. economy depends on businesses investing in the economic security of their employees and the communities in which they operate. From offering competitive wages and benefits to developing training programs to enrich the skills of students and adult workers, leading U.S. employers are creating opportunities for Americans to secure well-paying jobs and build fulfilling careers.
