Workforce & Economic Development

Workforce Development

As the U.S. economy undergoes structural changes, employers' workforce needs are changing too. A growing skills gap in the country's labor force threatens economic growth and the livelihoods of millions of workers and their families. State and local workforce development boards and partner organizations are working to close this gap; however, increased demand, growing reporting and monitoring requirements, and shrinking allocations pose significant challenges. PCG can help your workforce organizations tackle these issues, and increase their program impact.
