The Fed Reserve Released a New Report Highlighting Worker Voices
The Fed Communities released “Worker Voices: Shifting Perspectives and Expectations on Employment,” a collaborative research report by the Federal Reserve. The report aimed to better understand workers’ perspectives and how they can help inform workforce policies going forward. Public Works Partners collaborated with the Federal Reserve Banks of Philadelphia and Atlanta to facilitate conversations with workers across the United States. The goal was to capture their insights and challenges in navigating the labor market during the height of the pandemic. Through our conversations, we learned that the tight labor market has not benefited all workers equally. Workers also now have enhanced expectations of job quality, and they are actively reinventing themselves through skill development and self-investment to change their economic opportunities. Dive into the report’s findings here.
OFFICE WARMING RECAP
Warming Up Our New Office: Drinks, Friends, Music, and Fun
We were delighted to open our new office to our friends and colleagues in celebration of our growth and recent brand refresh. FUN is one of our core values, and sometimes we just close our laptops to connect with colleagues over drinks, food, and house music. A big thank you to Catherine Louise Schubert for catering, to our photographer Anais Conde for capturing the memories, and to Gant Johnson for supplying us with great music all night long.
