Oregon Talent Plan
The issue is
clear. Companies in Oregon cannot grow
or be competitive without the right employee talent. Without the right combination of skills,
it takes longer for workers to come up to speed. This time lag represents real costs – companies
grow more slowly, worker wages stagnate, and the best and brightest leave our
communities for other opportunities.
is the driver of economic growth; industry, education, workforce and government
must work together to create more robust and agile education and training
models for both incumbent workers and new graduates.
The Talent Council is required to develop the Oregon Talent Plan each biennium to identify talent issues and industry trends and unite the needs of industry with resources that can help transform Oregon’s worksource. The plan is a living document, and will be further developed over time to guide the Council.
The first draft of the Talent Plan was adopted by the Council on November 12, 2015.
