Workforce Needs Assessment
The following Workforce Needs Assessment and Workforce Development Recommendations reports present findings on the analysis of the Life Sciences & Health Services industry cluster. These reports provide overviews of the cluster, industry trends and economic impact, as well as overviews of the top demand occupations in the cluster requiring postsecondary education or training, along with projected occupational demand, institutions providing related education and training, and possible workforce gaps.
Valley Vision and partners are working across the region to address the key findings from these advisories and assessments as part of Developing a Ready Workforce.
