Michigan is Leading the Way
Michigan has seen great success in convening employer-led education and workforce partnerships in which employers are much more than advisors or beneficiaries. Instead, they are end customers of talent supply chains. Using this end-to-end talent management process gives employers a framework for how to get organized and to better communicate industry needs to education and workforce development partners. ELCs play a critical role for employers and the larger public-private partnerships with which they engage. ELCs organize data on their most critical workforce needs to share with partners and manage talent supply chains to improve recruitment and retention of a skilled workforce.
Through strategic partnerships comprised of employers, educators, workforce development, economic development, and other stakeholders, an accessible platform that accelerates the capacity to develop and align education and training curriculum with the industry’s rapidly growing talent needs is being created. This talent pipeline management strategy will collaboratively build supply chain-based high performing industry, education and workforce partnerships that deliver a measurable return on investment for employers, their talent sourcing partners and most importantly, learners.
