Maher & Maher, Economic Modeling Specialists Inc.

Drawing on the unique expertise of each partner, the Regional Workforce Intelligence solution builds regions through strong project management, expanded social networking, integrated economic and workforce analysis, and unique performance management tools.
Maher & Maher’s change management consulting process ensures that regional goals are transformative, achievable and designed through strong partner collaboration. EMSI and FWS deliver their unique toolkits, which provide regions with solid economic data, analysis and proven performance management software. Access to EMSI’s Strategic Advantage Suite and FWS’s WiredIn tool constitute the data and performance parts of the Regional Workforce Intelligence package.
Richard D. Maher, President of Maher & Maher, sees Regional Workforce Intelligence as a major advance in technical assistance to any region that wants to organize its economic and workforce development systems around WIRED principles. “In seeking partners to provide real solutions for WIRED regions, we wanted to find data analysis firms that understand the on-the-ground issues that regions are facing, and would produce actionable information and analysis that illuminates those issues and contributes to the development of strategic action. We firmly believe we have found those firms in EMSI and FWS,” said Maher. “This unique partnership offers regional leaders expertise in managing change, developing social networks, data-driven decision-making, and powerful tools to breathe sustainability and targeted performance management into their planning. There is simply no other bundle of companies that can offer the breadth of knowledge and experience of this uniquely qualified partnership.”
