The Rework America Business Network is an initiative of the Markle Foundation. The Network was launched in 2018 with 11 founding large U.S. member companies, which collectively employ approximately 2.2 million Americans. These companies seek to deepen their talent pools of qualified candidates and expand opportunities for people of diverse backgrounds by recruiting and hiring with a focus on individuals’ skills. Member companies also seek to explore how companies can better utilize a skills-based approach when it comes to learning and development. The Network works to share effective practices and encourage more U.S. companies to adopt them, as well as advocate for resources and policies to support these practices.
