Workforce Board helps businesses plan for expansion
Mike visits with Lisa Patt-McDaniel, CEO of the Workforce Development Board of Central Ohio. They discuss what her group does to link business and those seeking employment.
“Some of the things that we think will be very important for Central Ohio moving into the future. First of all, change is happening faster and faster,” said Patt-McDaniel. “We as a board, with our partners and employers, want to think through that change much quicker. So, looking at data, creating those relationships where business tells us their plans so that we can react to them quickly. The other thing we want to do in reacting to that change quickly is making sure the talent in Central Ohio has the ability to acquire skills and credentials as quickly as they can so they can adapt to the jobs that are available.”
