Laying the Foundations

Setting the stage for transformative impact

Measure your workforce baseline

Key ways to assess your current workforce and existing commitments

Survey your workforce policies and practices

Which policies and processes are working? Which are barriers to success?

Map your community's assets

You know your community needs jobs—but do you know the strengths it can offer?

Identify your partners

A workforce pipeline doesn't have to be built alone—who will be on your team?

Design around data and metrics

What are you going to measure to assess success, and how are you going to measure it?

Plan for sustainability

How do you institutionalize programs and get the whole team on board?
