Seismic Shift

The aging of our workforce combined with the impact of AI and automation on jobs is causing a seismic shift for employers. Goldman Sachs estimates that generative AI will disrupt the equivalent of 300 million full-time jobs worldwide. Combine that prediction with the fact that older workers will soon be 25% of the US labor force, and it clearly illustrates why employers and policymakers should be laser-focused on the workforce needs of older adults.

At CWI Labs, our mission is to revolutionize our nation’s approach to workforce development so employers can tap into a national network of job ready, experienced talent.

Closing the Gap

The U.S. has especially weak labor market policies when measured against global competitors. According to the Organization for Co-operation and Development (OECD), the U.S. spends about 0.10% of GDP on programs that actively encourage labor force participation, the lowest of any OECD country after Mexico. CWI Labs partners with forward-thinking organizations to raise awareness and fill the gaps in our workforce development system.  We are building a national coalition to drive systemic change, power economic opportunity, and enable all adult job seekers to thrive in the ever-changing world of work.
