With 10 million open jobs and 8.4 million people unemployed, the nation needs solutions for connecting people with the right skills for the right jobs not a return to business-as-usual but the creation of an inclusive and skilled workforce ready for the changing nature of work. According to author Van Ton-Quinlivan, CEO of Futuro Health, the solution starts with an agile mindset and the cultivation of an ecosystem of collaboration.

“An ecosystem of willing partners can provide agility during unsettled times by pivoting with changing trends and shifting conditions,” writes Ton-Quinlivan in her new book WorkforceRx: Agile and Inclusive Strategies for Employers, Educators and Workers in Unsettled Times.

These “playbooks,” as she calls them, present practical options for dealing holistically with the challenges facing employers, workers, and the economy today, all of which have direct relevance to the post-COVID economy.

“This book is great storytelling and a master class in big design thinking. Well worth reading,” states Tammy Johns, CEO of Strategy & Talent, former SVP Innovation and Workforce Solutions of ManpowerGroup.
