Economic and Community Development
Nashville Workforce Trends
This week I presented the ACCE Chamber Trends show to two different audiences in Texas. When I get to the Economic Development side there is a big question mark beside workforce training, and it has been that way for nearly two years now. The question mark signifies the difficulty to foresee employment levels and talent needs in the middle to long term because the economy is in such a state of flux. My comments on this matter generally elicit a lot of head bobbing. I suspect, however, that an audience in Nashville, TN would have a lot more to say about this issue.
The Nashville (TN) Chamber of Commerce recently released a comprehensive regional workforce study. In addition to projecting the regionís demographic and educational attainment trends for the coming decade, it also forecasts employment demand in macro sectors.
