Work and Training
The world of work is constantly changing, and AIR takes an active approach to understanding the needs and preparedness of the workforce in responding to this change. AIR works closely with government agencies, such as the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education, as well as foundations, professional societies, and other organizations to understand how post-secondary education, training, and policy issues relate to how well the workforce is prepared to meet the current and future demands of work. AIR conducts original research that seeks to determine and monitor progress toward workforce development goals, provides technical assistance to workforce development entities, and supports or evaluates programs designed to improve the workforce.
