Business Leaders, Help Us Help You. Having difficulty finding experienced workforce? Challenged by job seekers without the necessary skills? The St. Lucie, Indian River and Martin County economic development organizations, workforce, educational, and industry partners have joined forces to reassess businesses’ challenge of finding qualified candidates and whether ‘we’ve moved the needle’ since the 2017 study findings and recommendations. The Treasure Coast Skills Gap Study will identify talent and skills gaps in health care, manufacturing, logistics, skilled trades, aviation and marine industries in the region. The survey and interview results will be used to improve workforce delivery system and better access to talent. Because of your knowledge of the skills and workforce issues within your organization, you are invited to complete a short survey assessing the skill gap. The survey takes only ten minutes. Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide insight into this important issue. This survey is one tool being used to measure this gap.
