Workforce Ready

15,000 more local workers needed in the next 10 years.

Workforce Ready is a community initiative that will draw attention to workforce shortages that threaten to become more problematic over the next 10 years.

The local workforce need is especially great in the skilled trades, advanced technology and healthcare sectors.

The stakes are high. If no concerted action is taken, the region will lose 228 net workers while it creates over 15,000 net new local jobs in the next 10 years.

The good news is that action IS being taken. Community leaders, employers and our education systems are collaborating on initiatives to recruit, prepare and retain our future workforce.
