Leading Practices

  • The San Diego Workforce Partnership’s American Job Center staff use a series of videos to help jobseekers develop their Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act-required individualized employment plans that align with their ikigai, which helps job seekers explore their own strengths, interests and values; their job quality preferences; and how they can align those assets to job openings and skill shortages prioritized by employers.

  • Quest Diagnostics had high turnover and operational issues, leading to frustrated employees and customers. In 2015, under new leadership, the company launched a Good Jobs Transformation to improve the performance and lives of the workers through creating greater meaning and purpose at work.

  • Good Jobs, Good Business from Pacific Community Ventures has a chapter focused on strategies to strengthen employee engagement and create strong workplace cultures that includes the business case and specific steps to get started.
