With the rapid pace of growth and development in the Research Triangle region, workforce development is a top priority for many. The Regional Skills Analysis survey aims to gain a better understanding of the current state of the local workforce, skill gaps, and trends in growth, hiring, and industries.
In 2017, the first deployment of the survey, the data revealed several interesting data points and trends:
- 73 percent of companies surveyed expect to grow in the next three years.
- In the next three years, businesses surveyed expect to hire between 22,000 and 36,700 people for new jobs.
- Friends and Networks are being used frequently for sourcing talent.
To view the results of the first survey, you can visit Wake County Economic Development’s website. Data collected from the survey will be used to compile a robust report of the workforce related data and will be used to help inform next steps on building a stronger workforce and talent pipeline.
