Skills for a Ready Future Workforce
Valley Vision has been examining Future of Work trends for many years. Our latest research was made possible through funding from the City of Sacramento CARES COVID Relief and in partnership with Burning Glass Technologies. This analysis sought to answer the question, where should resources be targeted to provide the most effective skills acquisition and training, especially to disproportionately impacted community members, to enhance and accelerate recovery from the pandemic.
Building on previous work, Automation Risk for Jobs in the Capital Region (March 2020) report looking at the potential impacts of automation in our nine county region, recovery from the pandemic and future workforce development strategies need to be responsive to multiple factors including:
• Meeting current and projected job needs
• Reducing future risk of automation/obsolescence
• Improving job quality (higher wages, benefits and career advancement opportunities)
• Improving equity for communities of color, women and underserved groups
The following white paper highlights the result of these efforts:
