In the Spotlight: Ohio Manufacturers’ Innovative Approach to Workforce Development

Sara Tracey, managing director for the OMA’s workforce services, sat down this week with Spectrum News to discuss how the association is helping manufacturers attract and train workers.

In this six-minute interview, which aired on “In Focus” — Spectrum’s public affairs program — Sara told host Mike Kallmeyer how the OMA and its partners are creating programs and initiatives to “develop a pipeline of students, job seekers, and trainees who are ready to come to work with the skills manufacturers are looking for.” She noted that TechCred (see related story) has been a “game changer” in the effort to enhance Ohio’s skilled labor pool.
