Deloitte Consulting: New tools for job seekers, employers and community leaders

Posted by Ben Seigel - On October 29, 2014 (EST)

The Bureau of Labor and Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, reported that as of September 2014, more than 3 million Americans (of all ages, ethnicities, geographies, industries and education and experience levels) were long-term unemployed — actively seeking work for more than 27 weeks without success. One of the worst legacies of the Great Recession, long-term unemployment is the defining employment challenge of our post-recession economy.

More than 300 leading companies, including Deloitte and 20 members of the Fortune 50, have signed on to the White House’s Best Practices for Recruiting and Hiring the Long-Term Unemployed. These companies have committed to addressing this issue not only because it’s the “right thing to do,” but because it also makes business sense.

"Deloitte is committed to helping tackle the long-term unemployment challenge by providing job seekers, employers and community leaders with resources to connect dedicated workers with open talent needs and strengthen America's workforce,” said Jim Moffatt, CEO Deloitte Consulting LLP.
