Workforce Rx Podcast with Byron Auguste, Founder and CEO of Opportunity@Work

Episode #18: Seeking Skilled Workers? Look to the STARs.

Finding qualified workers has become a chronic and deeply concerning struggle for U.S. employers, but as Byron Auguste, a PhD economist and former White House economic policy official, sees it, this is a self-inflicted problem. “When you exclude people who don’t have a bachelor’s degree, you’re excluding almost 70 percent of African-Americans, 80 percent of Latino and Latina workers, and almost 80 percent of rural Americans of all races,” he says.  

That’s why the non-profit he co-founded and leads, Opportunity@Work, is asking employers to dip into the overlooked talent pool of the 70 million Americans who are Skilled Through Alternative Routes (STARs). “This is the golden age of new ways to learn new skills, and yet you have these very old, backward-looking bases for hiring. We need to have hiring to catch up to learning.”
