A resilient community is better prepared to meet the unexpected. As economic developers, we know that a strong workforce pipeline is critical to the resilience of our communities and to the success of our local, new, emerging, and established businesses. To stay competitive, companies and communities alike need talented and skilled workers. Yet the challenges we face – assessing the talent and skills of workers, and recognizing the requirements of the jobs of the future – are complex. Federal and state experts are addressing this challenge and putting in place the resources we need to respond to the rapidly-changing world of work.
