Creating Strategic Plans for Workforce Development

Identifying occupations that are needed by businesses in a region is a precursor to the creation of a workforce development strategic plan. Moreover, identifying occupations that are currently in demand and those that will be needed over the next decade enables institutions in a region to better align their resources in workforce and education to meet the needs of businesses. Knowing which occupations are now in-demand and expected to remain in-demand over the next decade also empowers residents or communities to obtain the skills to compete for those jobs and to obtain living wages.
