Charged with creating a strong, sustainable future for business and communities across North Carolina, the NC Chamber Foundation is tackling the workforce challenge head-on by expanding the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Talent Pipeline Management (TPM) program within the state. This nationally recognized program has helped businesses in multiple sectors transform their workforce pipelines, and our team is excited to bring it to North Carolina.
TPM is a demand-driven, employer-led approach to close the skills gap by building pipelines of talent aligned to dynamic business needs.
The process starts with the TPM Academy, where state and local chambers, business associations, economic development agency leaders, and employers are trained in the framework’s six strategies to drive partnerships with education and training providers. Trained facilitators then utilize supply-chain management principles to follow the framework, resulting in a more data- and performance-driven approach to improving these partnerships.
