As the “global war for talent” continues to escalate, shortages of high-skill, college-educated workers are increasing, producing challenges for all stakeholders vested in developing and retaining talented employees. To address this growing knowledge-based skills gap, higher education institutions, economic developers, and workforce development intermediary organizations, and employers must proactively work together as engaged partners in educating and retaining employees to meet workforce demands. Creating integrated pathways for students to transition successfully from the classroom, to experiential learning, to employment requires planning, relationship-building, and collaboration. This interactive session provides replicable examples of talent development / retention strategies implemented at the regional-, metropolitan-, and state-levels. An outcomes-oriented facilitated discussion follows, enabling participants to identify solutions to talent-based challenges.
