Workforce Development + Talent Retention
Preparing today to meet the workforce needs of tomorrow.
A workforce-centric approach to economic development results in resilient and prosperous communities. In today’s environment of tight labor markets — a trend that will shape the workforce for years to come — leveraging a community’s talent resources is the key to ensuring economic vitality.
Camoin Associates helps our clients craft actionable workforce development and talent retention solutions to create a resilient labor pipeline and supporting equitable and inclusive economic growth.
Workers often face a constant demand for training and upskilling without adequate access to vital enabling support, including affordable housing, transportation, and family care. With proper planning, analysis, strategy development, and collaborative implementation, Camoin Associates can help our clients address these challenges and create opportunities for companies, workers, and communities.
