Industry sector partnerships are widely recognized as a proven strategy for meeting the employment and skill needs of workers and employers.
A growing number of manufacturers in Ohio have implemented industry-led regional sector partnerships to address workforce development challenges, not the least of which is a widening skill gap resulting in a shortage of qualified candidates.
Sector partnerships create customer-driven alignment across what otherwise would be disparate initiatives and include state and local partners from education, economic development, workforce and industry.
This new Industry Sector Partnership Directory catalogs 11 Ohio partnerships and the counties which they serve.
The directory is based on responses to a survey sent in late 2018 to sector partnership ‘intermediaries.’ New and emerging partnerships will be updated during the next survey cycle. For more information, please contact Sara Tracey. 1/22/2019
