Your city and every other community in America are in an all-out arms race to develop, attract, and keep talent. Emsi has spent the last two years mapping local labor markets by skill cluster to help communities more effectively build and market their regional talent ecosystem and partner with higher education to upskill and train workers. Regional skill clusters are becoming a powerful way for regions to better match their talent to companies. Learn how skills are changing the way you define your region and talent strengths.
Good partnerships between educators and industry partners are the quintessential win-win scenario. For most institutions, the question isn’t whether to pursue these partnerships, but how. To help answer this question, Emsi is hosting a masterclass webinar on Tuesday, September 24 at 2pm EDT (11am PDT) with Jeff Spain, workforce solutions senior consultant, and Scott Wegeng, director of employer engagement and experiential learning at Columbus State Community College. Don’t miss out as they share lessons they’ve learned along the way, and get into the nuts and bolts of cultivating and maintaining industry partnerships!
