WRTWC Releases Phase 1 Job Needs and Priorities Report

The West Region Transportation Workforce Center releases its Phase 1 Job Needs and Priorities Report and Executive Summary. The report provides: 1) a broad overview of the transportation industry and workforce in the West Region, 2) an analysis of labor market data on transportation industries and occupations in the region, and 3) a synthesis of stakeholder feedback on priority occupations of concern for the region as a whole. The research team identified 10 priority occupations based on regional industry drivers, labor market data, and stakeholder input. The priority occupations highlight common needs region-wide that warrant focused attention from the Center. The Phase 2 report will showcase the programs or partnerships needed to address regional workforce priorities.
