Make It Work For Lincoln
Over the past several years, the Knowledge Management Council (KMC) has successfully identified and demonstrated that we have the ability to bring the jobs to Lincoln, we have the people who can perform the work, and we have the resources to keep the jobs here. This collective partnership—created by ATD Lincoln—has brought together community programs, government agencies, institutions of higher education, and community supporters to develop a business survey that is truly business driven, and a household survey to identify the true needs of those in the Lincoln area. The business survey was conducted with over 200 Lincoln companies, and its primary purpose is to create/increase awareness of the education and skill levels currently available, while also identifying those that are needed/necessary for the future development of the Lincoln workforce.
The results from these surveys can be used by local businesses, leadership, colleges, and universities for strategic and succession planning. The surveys also enable us to identify available programs and focus on the underutilized resources available in our community.
To review findings from the KMC, including the Make It Work for Lincoln Labor Availability Study, Business Survey Results, Household Survey Results, and Programs and Services Identified, visit the KMC website.
