Positioning Your Institution with Industry for a Sustainable Workforce
In this month’s Closer Conversation, we shared and learned how we work with businesses to build sustainable talent pipelines. The current economy requires creative solutions to provide the workers that companies need—and that means folks who will show up on time prepared to work with the skills to do the job. Every college and university has a role to play here from retaining their own employees in small communities to providing the workforce for businesses of all sizes—both near and far to them. In this Closer Conversation we talked about who you serve, how you determine mission alignment, how you grow and sustain a robust talent pool, and what happens when it all goes wrong—but more importantly how to keep that from happening.
