State of the Workforce Report

Clackamas Workforce Partnership together the Collaborative partners Worksystems and Workforce Southwest Washington has released the 2016 the State of the Workforce Report. The report examines the “state of the workforce” within the greater Portland-Vancouver region and aims to understand the balance between workforce supply and industry demand. The report provides critical information about the quality of the workforce, available and projected jobs, and describes some of the challenges and opportunities facing our region. Information in the report will be used to help us better ensure our workforce development efforts are effectively aligned with the needs of the regional economy, shape policy, consider investments and implement strategies to improve the quality of the regional workforce.

Regional Industry Reports

The Collaborative is focused on aligning and investing resources to support the workforce needs of four sectors: Advanced Manufacturing, Health Care, Software/IT, and Construction. Sectors are chosen based on factors such as their economic significance to the region, current number of openings and job growth projections, average wages that support self-sufficiency, and career ladder opportunities across the skill continuum. By examining labor market intelligence (such as the data contained in this report) and vetting the information with business partners, we are able to better understand industry trends, identify current and emergent workforce needs, and develop customized solutions for each sector.
