Our job preparation work advances two objectives: Northeast Ohio residents can get, keep and advance in jobs; and our talent pool is a comparative advantage for companies who stay, expand in, or are attracted to the region.
To support job preparation, The Two Tomorrows calls for our region to:

- Improve job quality through efforts to "raise the floor" and build pathways to advancement
- Reduce barriers to employment
