Jobs Outlook 2020
Vision 2015 -
08/10/2012 - The 2020 Jobs Outlook report forecasts our region’s job outlook: where the jobs will be in 2020 and what education and training will be in highest demand. This report is a valuable directional guide for targeting our job creation and workforce preparation efforts to accelerate growth in our regional economy.
, Partners for a Competitive Workforce
, the Strive Partnership
, and Vision 2015 produced this report because we know that skilled talent drives regional economic prosperity. Yet, our region has consistently ranked in the bottom third on educational attainment rates when compared to the peer regions in our Regional Indicators Report.
Using these data, we can prepare our workforce for in-demand jobs and reach our community’s Bold Goals
to have 45% of adults in our region hold an Associate degree or higher and 90% of the labor force gainfully employed by 2020.
Armed with new insights, we will identify opportunities to build career pathways for current workers and the students in our local talent pipeline. We will engage our educational institutions to align academic programs, curriculum, and credentials to better respond to labor market needs. Finally, we will help jobseekers and students understand the education and training required for jobs with high growth potential and good wages.
