"Working, Texas Style:" a new book from the Texas Workforce Commission
The Workforce Commission has a new book out, "Working Texas Style," which looks at "the structural change going on in the current Texas economy." The book explores globalization, new technologies such as nanotechnology and biotech, trends in oil and gas, and needs of firms in renewable energy.
It also looks into "critical issues facing the Texas workforce," such as the challenges posed by having four generations working together in the office, "opportunities presented" by the increase of Hispanics and women in the workplace, and "skill mismatch."
The book is $15, plus shipping. To order, click here.
