Quality Jobs in Ventura County

High quality jobs are the foundation of an equitable economy that lifts up workers and families and makes businesses more competitive globally. They allow everyone to share in prosperity and support local communities and the entire U.S. economy. Workers know the value of a quality job that provides stability and security for them and their families. All work is important and deserving of dignity. Many companies recognize that providing good quality jobs – that make them an employer of choice – creates a clear competitive advantage when it comes to recruitment, retention, and execution of a company’s mission.

We use the National Fund’s Job Design Framework. The framework helps job seekers identify opportunities that best fit their needs and helps employers recruit and retain top talent. Four pillars guide the framework: Core, Support, Community, and Voice.

The post-COVID-19 economic recovery has resulted in a tight labor market with many workers searching for higher quality work and economic mobility and employers across industries struggling to attract and retain skilled talent needed to maintain or grow their business.

By providing quality jobs with family sustaining wages, robust benefits, safe and inclusive work environments, predictable work scheduling, staff professional development, and internal growth for employees, employers can address their skills gaps, increase the number of skilled applicants to open positions and address employee retention rates. Simultaneously, employers can improve their company’s diversity, equity, and inclusion practices.

We can help you learn how to assess and improve the quality of your company’s employment opportunities and help promote job quality efforts.
