CareerEdge Seeking Help to Study Industry Skills Gap



The CareerEdge Funders Collaborative is putting up a “help wanted” sign for local insurance companies, looking specifically for help identifying the jobs and skills local businesses need to grow their organizations. The results will inform the Insurance Skills Gap Study, which will contain data retrieved from employer roundtables and telephone interviews with local insurance industry leaders. Training resources available in the region will be compared to the feedback and needs that employers mention in these interviews. The goal is to identify whether training currently exists and, if not, what must be changed or added by training partners to help insurance companies fill the skill gap, hire employees, and grow their companies. The survey is being conducted by Stephanie Kempton of Kempton Research and Planning. CareerEdge Funders Collaborative joined The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce earlier this year to expand workforce development initiatives like this to more industries. Commitment and participation from local employers during the research phase of this project is crucial, and CareerEdge requests that local organizations who are interested in joining this discussion should contact, Lauren Meyer, CareerEdge Program Coordinator, for further information.
