Workforce Development

State

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.

At the state level, to help with efforts to educate and train a competitive workforce, we support reforms to career and technical education (CTE) policies and programs.
