Labor market data contextualized and packaged well can help you better tell your story to businesses and site selectors. But which data points should you focus on? What are the best ways to visualize them?
Labor availability—specifically how many workers are available at a certain wage range—is a huge issue for businesses looking to expand or relocate. Thus, it’s a huge issue for economic development organizations and site selection consultants working with businesses. To help answer the talent availability (and sustainability) question, we’ve launched a new report in Emsi Developer that drills into the supply of talent by compensation—and how much similarly skilled talent a business can tap into at different wage levels.
Using Emsi data, HR&A Advisors discovered in a recent study that tech is kind of a big deal in New York City. It’s quickly taking over the concrete jungle as industry juggernauts like Google, Facebook, WeWork, and Amazon move in and expand. In addition to the big names, nearly 10,000 tech startups have moved in like hot dog carts.
Tennessee students now have an easier time finding educational programs that prepare for in-demand jobs thanks to a new report from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD). The fourth annual Labor and Education Alignment Program report, published in November, highlighted educational needs in STEM, IT, healthcare, and more.
