The WDC works to gain a better understanding of local workforce needs through innovative research to inform sector strategies and programs.
Talent Pipeline Studies
Our talent pipeline studies include clusters such as Health Care, Manufacturing, Trade & Logistics, and Maritime. Using the WDC’s past talent pipeline research as a foundation, these studies serve as an occupational supply and demand analysis that aims to calculate potential gaps that may persist without changes in workforce preparation efforts.
State of the Workforce Data
The WDC’s State of the Workforce portal profiles several facets of community and economic data, and can help users gain a common understanding of local workforce needs and opportunities. This interactive report is a living document that provides regional workforce and demographic data in a visually engaging and easily understood format.
The WDC’s variety of reports and studies reflect our ongoing commitment to innovative research that supports a better understanding of local workforce needs and a focus on sectors identified by the WDC biennially.
