A skilled and educated workforce is the cornerstone of a competitive, healthy economy.
A strong talent pipeline is not only essential to retaining businesses that have chosen NC as their home, but also recruiting new businesses that will enhance our economic competitiveness and improve quality of life for North Carolinians. Urgent, sustainable action is needed to ensure students are adeptly prepared for the jobs of tomorrow, and that our current workforce has the opportunity to reskill and/or pivot to acclimate to new business demands.
