State of Georgia seeks input from businesses for workforce needs

The state of Georgia is looking for input from employers of all sizes to identify workforce needs for now and into the future.

The Georgia Department of Economic Development’s workforce division launched a High Demand Career Initiative interactive tool this week on, according to a release.

Companies are asked to submit information regarding: “the specific occupations anticipated to demand the largest number of new employees, the occupations that are the most difficult to fill, the critical soft/workplace skills most needed, as well as additional details regarding the nature of their workforce challenges.”

The information collected from the assessment will allow the state to map the needs of employers by region and help establish workforce development initiatives to better serve communities throughout the state.
