Survey is Hosted in Conjunction with the Austin Chamber
AUSTIN – Workforce Solutions Capital Area (Workforce Solutions), in conjunction with the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce (Austin Chamber), is partnering with The Graduate! Network to encourage Austin/Travis County-area businesses to complete the Bridging the Talent Gap employer survey by December 31. The survey is available at http://tiny.cc/BridgingTalentGapSurvey (full address: https://bridgingthetalentgap.org/austin-employer-survey).
The goal of the survey is to identify and address skill shortages and opportunities for public-private partnerships across our community. Local employers representing various industries will be asked to share the key challenges they face in attracting, retaining and upskilling the talent needed to grow their businesses.
“Our community is known as an economic powerhouse with low unemployment and a highly skilled workforce,” says Tamara Atkinson, Chief Executive Officer of Workforce Solutions Capital Area. “However, to maintain that positive reputation and momentum, it is becoming increasingly crucial for the voices of local employers to be clearly heard and reflected in new initiatives. Employers need to be both thought partners and the final ‘customers’ in the workforce development system.”
