One of Michigan’s biggest challenges is how to close the skills gap. The Michigan Chamber is working with lawmakers, Governor Snyder and other stakeholders to create a talent pipeline and fill the approximately 100,000 skilled trades jobs that are posted and remain unfilled. The focus has been on expanding skilled trades, strengthening career technical education statewide and increasing apprenticeship opportunities to create more jobs – but, clearly, more work needs to be done.
The Governor is asking job providers to take a two-question survey on ways to close the skills gap. We hope you’ll consider participating!
