Today’s Needs and Tomorrow’s Talent
A catalyst for creating world-class talent, Workforce Florida Inc. is the statewide board of business and government leaders which, along with its workforce system and other collaborative partners, develops innovative strategies to help Floridians advance in the workforce and strengthen the state’s business climate.
Charged by the Legislature to “develop a strategic plan for workforce, with the goal of producing skilled employees for employers in the state,” Workforce Florida has developed a five-year strategic plan, Creating the Strategy for Today’s Needs and Tomorrow’s Talent, to map out Florida’s workforce development vision for 2010-2015.
This strategic plan, updated annually, was created through an inclusive and transparent process involving public and private-sector input from throughout the state to ensure a more competitive Florida, strengthen the state’s demand-driven workforce system and leverage talent development resources to their highest potential. The plan identifies six strategic goals to confront the challenges of getting Floridians back to work while focusing on the most promising opportunities to diversify the state’s economy for national and global competitiveness—now and into the future.
