The Talent 2.0 Regional Workforce Strategy

Talent and Workforce is an essential part of a healthy economy. As the region continues to grow, businesses and communities realize that the development, maintenance and accessibility of a talented workforce is a top priority.

Talent development is a team sport that requires public, private and educational institutions to work collaboratively to be successful. Numerous barriers keep existing residents from fully participating in the labor force. These barriers can range from access to transportation and child care to increased commute times and traffic congestion.
