Team NEO’s Research staff creates county job demand reports
In May, Team NEO released an updated version of its Aligning Opportunities in Northeast Ohio report. The report analyzes the job demand and supply picture for the 18 counties of our region. Since its release, the report has received widespread attention from the local and national media and has been presented at several events across the region, including the Northeast Ohio Economic Development Exchange (NODE).
Many of our county partners have contacted Team NEO requesting a customized version of the Aligning Opportunities report for their specific county. In response, Team NEO has created a Job Demand 2017 report which contains job demand calculations measured by 2017 job postings in the same way as in the Aligning Opportunities report.
This report can be utilized by county economic development organizations when creating workforce strategies. The job demand report can also be used by local community colleges and trade schools when creating curriculum for Northeast Ohio residents to better understand what occupations offer the greatest opportunity. Workforce is a high priority issue regionally and this data will assist with informing talent development policy.
Please contact Sydney Martis at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in the Job Demand 2017 report for your county. Starting in the spring of 2019, the 2018 version of the Job Demand report will be available for all Northeast Ohio counties on Team NEO’s Partner Portal.
