May 11, 2021 - In Colorado, we know successful talent development solutions are industry-driven and data-informed. To ensure our state has a skilled and educated workforce that is responsive to industry needs, the CWDC and partners in the TalentFOUND network are leading efforts to administer the Bridging the Talent Gap employer survey. The survey is designed to understand the skills gaps Colorado businesses face and identify how education and training programs can help close those gaps.
We are asking employers to complete the 15-minute survey to provide information about their talent needs and talent development focus. The survey should be completed by human resource directors, business owners or managers, or other individuals responsible for recruiting talent. The employer survey is open through June 15.
When survey results become available in fall of 2021, employers will be able to access interactive dashboards with data that reflects talent gap information in the local employer ecosystem, as well as custom reports to compare your business to others across the state and nation. This data will not only help you communicate your organization’s talent needs, but identify internal talent development solutions using the expertise of the TalentFOUND network.
TalentFOUND network partners will use the data and insights gathered through the survey to develop effective, targeted talent development solutions and work with employers to implement practices and programs to strengthen their business. Learn more about Bridging the Talent Gap.
