Recording | Buring Glass and Birmingham, AL: Building it Together
Find out how a labor market analysis can target opportunities and drive a regional economic development effort. The Bold Goals Coalition of Central Alabama commissioned Burning Glass Technologies to conduct a labor market analysis to identify opportunities to expand the Birmingham-area economy and define the workforce requirements needed to achieve that growth. Since the initial research, the coalition has implemented two initiatives under the “Building it Together” banner and drawing on Buring Glass data. In this webinar we will walk you through this effort and discuss how real-time labor data was used to:
- Align all partners in the region around the same goals
- Refocus traditional economic development efforts around the economic opportunity of the individual
- Develop two strategic and transformational projects: TIP-TAP-TOP and Birmingham Promise
