Jan. 5, 2024 - In conjunction with the release of the 2023 Talent Pipeline Report, the CWDC has updated the Colorado Talent Dashboard with the latest data to provide an interactive tool for analyzing and understanding the demand for and supply of talent in the state. The updated site features interactive data visualizations and shares talent development-related data more broadly to help policy makers, program developers, and talent development organizations make informed decisions about building education, training, and workforce policies and programs. Explore the Colorado Talent Dashboard.
Among its many findings, the 2023 Talent Pipeline Report highlighted the annual Top Jobs list (which grew by 30 occupations this year), Colorado’s strong labor force participation rate (which ranked 5th highest nationally in July 2023), and the economic impact of Colorado’s workforce system ($565.3M in PY20). All that data and more is available at the Colorado Talent Dashboard.
The Colorado Talent Dashboard features:
- Workforce Demand Data: Explore job trends, top jobs, critical industries, and in-demand skills and qualifications to better understand employer demand and industry needs across the state.
- Workforce Supply Data: Explore data surrounding education attainment, employment rates, and demographic trends to better understand Colorado’s current workforce and disparities in unemployment and attainment rates.
- Network Impact Data: See the impact and outcomes of existing services and programs offered by partners in Colorado’s talent development network and how they are helping Coloradans.
- Additional Resources: Access additional resources from across Colorado’s talent development network to explore more data and information about the state of talent in Colorado.
The Colorado Workforce Development Council launched the new Colorado Talent Dashboard last year in partnership with the Colorado Department of Higher Education and with support from the Colorado Department of Labor & Employment - Office of Labor Market Information, Colorado Department of Local Affairs - State Demography Office, Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, and the Colorado Department of Education.
