Labor supply studies are customized reports to assist economic/workforce development with business recruitment. These studies answer the questions from employers concerning the availability of labor within a certain area. This availability of workers by occupation can be critical for a business to make a location decision.
Labor supply for business consists of occupational data on current workers, enrollees/completers/graduates of education/training programs, and job seekers. The occupations for the labor supply studies are selected by the business prospect.
Transferable skills are applied to the occupations requested by the employer. Occupations with similar skills are added to the labor supply counts to provide a more complete picture of workers available for the business prospect.
