LABOR MARKET INFORMATION

The Partnership utilizes a wide array of information about workforce and industry needs to develop its strategies. Using the resources available through our partnership with workforce system and economic development entities we have access to industry profiles, economic trends and occupational profiles.

TARGET OCCUPATIONS

Each year using data and labor market information, the Partnership identifies 8 to 10 critical occupations that needs specific attention to meet the growing healthcare occupational needs. The Partnership collectively works together to ensure the regional talent pipeline continually supplies talent with essential skills that meet industry needs. The GMDHP works with educational partners to design and develop curriculums that are current and meet industry standards.
