Workforce

Local

In the next decade, the Pittsburgh region’s workforce will be entirely transformed due to retirements, job growth and occupational transitions that will require new skills from existing employees. More than 290,000 Baby Boomers now in the workforce are eligible to retire over this period, and more than 50,000 new jobs are expected to be created here. As region, we must accelerate efforts to educate, train, retain and attract talent for more than one million jobs that will need to be filled by existing and upcoming workers to meet anticipated demand over the next decade.

Locally, to help accelerate talent attraction, the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce works with the City of Pittsburgh and county partners to further advance immigration reforms and welcoming policies that encourage legal, skilled immigration to the Pittsburgh region.
