At the White House Upskill Summit, employers were lauded for their success in helping their employees move into Middle Class jobs.

Why This Is a Really Big Deal
Ongoing development at the entry level is not always the first thing on the minds of healthcare executives, even if it is smart business. And recent challenges stemming from ACA make you wonder how these hospitals manage to prioritize these program and why they feel it's still so important. But then, that's what Catalyst Learning is all about:
"We are grateful for the opportunity to have worked with over 500 healthcare employers to increase the skills and upward mobility of entry and mid-level associates. It's a win for the organization in retention and engagement and a win for the associate who gains a career he/she never dreamed possible. Executives like Jenny, Molly, Tony and Joyce are making this happen from one end of America to the other - and we humbly and sincerely thank them for their partnership."
- Lynn Fischer, Founder & CEO, Catalyst Learning Company

Make a Commitment in Your Healthcare Organization
HR leaders at a northern California Medical Center created an Administrative Assistant Academy (AAA) for all Admins, Hospital Unit Service Coordinators (HUSC), Medical Office Service Coordinators (MOSC), as well as employees interested in transitioning to an administrative role. These vital, entry level workers are often the first line of contact for a patient or family and can directly impact patient flow.
