Who we serve.
In an effort to meet the workforce needs of local economies, our data incorporates both traditional and real-time labor market data from multiple big data sources to better inform educational and training interventions.
Secondary and post-secondary educators can use this data to assess labor market needs in a context that is relevant to their educational mission of developing and investing in programs that better match workforce needs in the local economy.
Workforce practitioners can use this data to influence the design of regional strategies as they relate to supporting and addressing documented skills gaps within a local economy. The data provides a deeper understanding of the gaps themselves, as well as the quality of career pathways.
Economic developers can use this data for attracting new business by demonstrating to site selectors a regional understanding of skills gaps, a support for existing business needs and a region's ability to provide and support a workforce.
To empower educators, workforce practitioners and economic developers with interest in career-oriented programming to make data-informed decisions that support the economy.
