Workforce Solutions Capital Area (WFS) regularly analyzes the regional labor market to identify the most in-demand industries and occupations.
So that Austin area businesses and organizations can better understand the local business climate, WFS published a new report offering offers local manufacturing employer perspectives, data, and innovative solutions to meet talent demand through our region’s industry sector partnership (the Central Texas Manufacturing Partnership, convened by WFS and Austin Regional Manufacturers Association).
🎙️ What they’re saying:
- Rick Loofs, chief operating officer at Cangshan Cutlery: “The lack of qualified skilled talent in the area is a significant regional issue. Any one employer may be able to lure a candidate or two away from another company, but the problem is still going to exist for all of us. We have to work together across industries and in collaboration with education, government, and organizations like ARMA and Workforce Solutions to do just that – find solutions!”
