HPIO Forum: What Works to Increase Self-Sufficient Employment

HPIO Forum: What Works to Increase Self-Sufficient Employment More events...

December 13, 2018 - 9:30am

This forum will explore state policy strategies that can strengthen supports for Ohio learners and jobseekers, thereby increasing the likelihood that Ohioans with low incomes will find better employment opportunities and eventually become self-sufficient.

There is clear evidence that employment is an important determinant of health, and that jobs that pay sufficient wages and offer benefits contribute to better health. However, many Ohioans are not prepared for self-sufficient employment because they lack postsecondary credentials, as well as the financial resources and/or family and community support to attain them. For these adults, the journey to self-sufficiency often requires additional support from policies and programs implemented in the public and private sectors.
