This project will create a practical guide that provides airport managers and other key personnel with day-to-day strategies to help combat human trafficking at airports. The need for this guidance was identified at the May 2018 ACRP insight event on economic and social sustainability.
This research seeks to capture the extent to which airports are facing the need for and engaging in organizational redesign across the industry and how airports can address the cultural challenges and impacts from redesign on their workforce. It will focus on identifying and providing airports with resources that are crucial to creating agile, innovative, and inclusive organizations for the future of air travel.
Develop guidance for airports on the impacts, risks, and effective mitigation strategies for addressing cognitive fatigue in airport personnel. The research should explore the root causes of fatigue, how fatigue impacts human performance, and approaches to minimize the risks associated with employee fatigue.
The purpose of this research is to support the airport industry in building a pipeline of talent that will result in skilled, long-tenured airport employees. This will be accomplished through a focus on recruitment and hiring practices that improve awareness of the industry, increase the number of interested and qualified applicants, and focus on increasing diversity and inclusion within the workforce pipeline.

Effects of and opportunities for public–private partnership funding of social programs
The purpose of this idea is to engage in a research process to develop an airport industry Guidebook and Toolkit on topics related to implementing a positive culture and enhancing the employee experience within airports.

The playbook would be designed for people on-the-go who can pick it up, read it for a few minutes and take away key talent planning ideas that can be implemented... more »
