Talent Demand Working Group

We believe convening representative contributors in the education and employment sector ensures a match between talent demands and talent pools.

In September 2019, the Talent Demand Working Group published the 6th Edition of the West Michigan Talent Assessment and Outlook. This report, as well as a data supplement, can be found in the Publications section of this website.
