LVEDC Talent Supply: Final Engagement Component of Talent Supply Study
By Colin McEvoy on April 9, 2018
Each week, Karianne Gelinas, Director of Talent Supply with the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation (LVEDC), will provide an update and additional information about its ongoing initiative to identify talent supply and demand issues in the region and create a strategy that results in a broader, ongoing understanding of the Lehigh Valley workforce. (See past updates.)
We are entering the final engagement component of the talent supply study, with the goal of validating the data that has been collected in the previous surveys, interviews, and focus groups we’ve been undertaking with MDB Insight.
Those past engagement sessions have been conducted with educational institutions, employers in our five target sector industries, and other stakeholders in the Lehigh Valley.
We will be hosting final focus groups this week, and then the next step will be preparing a final report to present the findings. We expect that report to be available in the summer of 2018.
The first step in preparing the report will be data validation, followed by an assertion of the feasibility of action items or tactics developed by the consultant, as well as prioritizing the identified action items.
