More than one pundit has said the jobs of the future haven’t been created yet. The North Shore is working on that. Many of the region’s specialty businesses have very specific and demanding workforce requirements. We are continually monitoring needs and responding with innovative and collaborative programs to ensure that companies concentrated here will have the workforce they need to grow in place.
The North Shore Workforce Investment Board is about helping companies find people and people find jobs. This includes creating programs that will generate jobs and careers with long-term viability, jobs that will pay a decent wage and allow people to stay on the North Shore. Many of these programs lead to certificates, associates or bachelors degrees.
We care about our workforce, many of whom are considered “knowledge workers.” As one local CEO says, our most important assets go home at night.
