Here is a great article from Bruce Trimble where he discusses how North Central Wisconsin Workforce Development Board uses EMSI’s data to help its community.
A quote from the article:
We strive to be the preeminent source for labor data by providing this information in a number of formats. The tool we use most often is software from Economic Modeling Specialists Inc., or EMSI. This powerful economic forecasting tool allows us to provide businesses with a vast array of economic data in many different reports. This information helps provide businesses and economic developers with all facets of employment and economic trends, such as information on industries, occupations, demographics, economic impacts, employment skills, job compatibility and educational attainment for any geographical area in our Workforce Development Area.
The article originally appeared in the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune. You can read the full piece here.
For the past five years EMSI has been very pleased to work closely with many of the nation’s top workforce investment boards to build data-driven systems that allow WIBs to connect with regional employers and help local jobseekers find long-lasting careers. In particular, we have developed Analyst so that workforce professionals have a business services toolkit that can be used to answer a broad range of workforce and economic questions. WIBs use Analyst to understand the local labor market so they can tackle workforce demand and shortage issues, worker compatibility, and how career and tech education training connects to labor market demand.
