LVEDC Talent Supply: Study Launch Event Date Has Been Set
By Colin McEvoy on May 7, 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.)
With our ongoing talent supply study in its final stages, LVEDC has announced the date for our launch event, during which the final report is expected to be completed and released.
The event will take place on Thursday, July 12, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at Blue Grillhouse at 4431 Easton Avenue in Bethlehem.
The event is free to attend and open to the public, but registration is required. Please visit this site to register and for more information.
As we discussed in the last talent supply update, LVEDC and the management consulting firm MDB Insight recently wrapped up the data validation portion of the study, which followed the stakeholder engagement and data collection portions involving surveys, interviews, and focus groups with educational institutions, employers, and other regional organizations.
The conversation was invigorating, and MDB Insight came away with a deeper understanding and additional ideas regarding talent supply and demand in the Lehigh Valley as a result of the feedback from our stakeholders.
