Workforce Takes Center Stage in Business Development and Expansion
27 Jul 2023
Across the country and within all industries, workforce development is a top issue for business development, expansion, and attraction.
Because of its importance, states, regions, and other localities are taking a workforce and talent-based approach to business expansion and attraction. Additionally, business and industry alliances and collaboratives are often taking the lead on industry-specific talent and workforce development and attraction initiatives.
When combined, these recent approaches help create understanding and provide the talent and workforce pipeline that businesses and industries need to grow while also providing opportunities for workers and job seekers to enter emerging occupations and careers. This is all in response to significant and rapid changes altering the workforce landscape, including demographics, response to COVID-19, changing technology, remote work, and more.
