Promoting excellence in government means helping governments and community leaders lay a foundation for economic growth and job creation. Our workforce development services range from customized technical assistance to training and research. We assist communities as they plan for the future and increase their capacity so that they can build a strong workforce to meet employer needs. This work includes state entities, local governments, non-profit organizations, educational institutions at all levels and employers. We pride ourselves in upholding similar partnerships with virtually all entities that play a role in workforce development across the state of Georgia.
We provide strategic consultation, analysis, project management and facilitation to state, regional and local workforce development initiatives. Workforce planning requires bringing together a variety of stakeholders including local employers, WIOA partners, post-secondary education, K-12 and CTAE, and others in the community. These community collaboratives then work to identify development goals and set implementation plans for achieving them.
We provide labor market data analysis and training for data-informed decision making, planning and assessment. We synthesize data to develop a deeper understanding of a county or region’s labor shed, educational profile and the industries and occupations that are declining and growing. We also train educators on how to use federal, state, and local data to support program alignment decision.
We assist Higher Education Institutions to assess programs, understand local workforce trends, and develop larger institutional strategies to maximize service effectiveness, serve students, meet regional workforce needs, and achieve measurable outcomes.
We conduct ongoing research on a variety of workforce related topics including best practices, benchmarking, and new economic, labor, and educational trends. We can also assist clients with data analysis to support their workforce planning efforts.
We provide technical assistance and meeting facilitation through the sector partnership needs assessment and strategy implementation process to help communities and regions meet their workforce development goals.
