This brief is one in a series of final reports from the Evaluation of the Jobs to Careers Program. It presents the preliminary findings of this evaluation that have specific relevance to healthcare employers.
Specifically, the brief describes the Jobs to Careers work-based learning model of education and career advancement, identifies the key issues for employers in designing and implementing programs based on this model, and illustrates the business case for this type of employer investment in frontline workers (FLWs).
This brief builds on additional study publications, including two evaluation briefs and a final synthesis report.
The Jobs to Careers: Transforming the Front Lines of Health Care initiative is a workforce development model that creates partnerships between employers, educational institutions, and other relevant stakeholders in the community to improve skill and career development in frontline workers.
