Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.
“Business Roundtable is grateful for the leadership of the Trump Administration — especially Ivanka Trump and Secretaries Acosta, Ross and DeVos — in this crucial effort to help more Americans develop the skills needed for career success,” said Wes Bush, Chairman and CEO of Northrop Grumman and Chairman of the Business Roundtable Education and Workforce Committee. “Today, millions of U.S. jobs are going unfilled because the skills of too many workers do not match the real-world needs of America’s employers. This partnership between business leaders and the Administration will expand high-quality training programs that align skills to employer needs and provide America’s workers with the right tools to excel in the jobs of today and tomorrow.”
“Business Roundtable welcomes the Administration’s efforts to provide all Americans with greater opportunities to learn new talents and build fulfilling careers,” said Joshua Bolten, President & CEO of Business Roundtable. “Workforce development is a top priority for Business Roundtable CEOs, who are engaged and invested in solving this pressing challenge for our economy through efforts such as the Roundtable’s Workforce Partnership Initiative. We look forward to partnering with the Administration to increase the competitiveness of the U.S. workforce for a stronger economic future.”
