In partnership with the Oregon Workforce and Talent Development Board (WTDB), Oregon’s Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) is conducting a Talent Assessment to gather industry input on access to skilled labor in Oregon, projections for in-demand occupations and skills, communication and data sharing, and workforce system performance. ECONorthwest and Program and Policy Insight (PPI) will be compiling, analyzing, and reporting on the data collected from the survey. In addition, HECC is working in partnership with ECONorthwest and PPI to support stakeholder interviews, focus groups, and a statewide Talent Summit on Friday, May 11 in Portland to contribute to the Talent Assessment.
Please circulate the survey link below to business and industry representatives you are connected with including and especially local workforce development board business members. These responses will provide critical business and industry perspectives on the workforce landscape and opportunities for improvement. We encourage and appreciate your support in all forms of stakeholder engagement on these issues.
