An emerging priority for the workforce system:Workforce development is an essential component of economic development

We are all in the business of economic development!

Strategies for economic development
Strategies for Economic Development

  • Jobs to People—Generating jobs targeted for particular places in decline or need, e.g. Enterprise zones

  • People to Jobs—Reducing barriers to job access: better public transportation, subsidized housing, social services

  • Educational Upgrading—Identify workforce skill deficiencies and focus training resources aligned with economic development priorities

  • Economic Growth—Expand the overall industrial base, less concern for job quality, more on job growth

  • Economic Diversification—Recruit specific sectors with unique criteria, complementary products, job qualities, environmental concerns

Growing the local economy ten things government can do to enhance economic development part i
Growing the Local Economy: Ten Things Government Can Do to Enhance Economic Development (part I)

1. Construct an “image” for the Place. Identify key features and amenities and create the marketing image

2. Invest in marketing the Place. Packaging is as important as creating the image

3. Engage in “imagineering” on behalf of prospective expanding or relocating employers (what could be)

4. Review local community processes to see if they work smoothly or are a hindrance. Fix what’s broke.

5. Invest in infrastructure: roads, airport access, telecommunications/broadband, utilities

6. Create a viable workforce through local investments in quality basic education and skills training

7. Establish an “all stakeholders” public advisory body to serve as a rapid response team

8. Create financial opportunities e.g. tax incentives, industrial revenue bonds, land grants, private “deal-making” authority

9. Support small business assistance centers, business incubators, entrepreneurial training and related new business formation activities

10. Collect and maintain data on local industries, labor supply, growth trends, prevailing wages, profiles, etc.

Goal 1 document twc interactions

Goal 1: Document TWC Interactions

To provide TWC administrators with pertinent information regarding how the Agency and Local Workforce Development Boards are interacting with the Texas and regional economy. Specifically how the TWC interacts with Texas industry sectors. This knowledge will be useful for reporting requirements and marketing within Texas industry segments and as a guidepost for the allocation and dispersion of targeted education and skills training funds.

Goal 2 provide data tools for regional economic development

Goal 2: Provide Data & Tools for Regional Economic Development

To provide persons engaged in Texas economic development access to decision-critical information about the dynamics of the Texas and regional economies. This system will focus on aspects of industry employment dynamics, regional characteristics, availability of labor supply, industry clustering and related analyses to provide a foundation for economic development activities. Analytical functions will overlap, or be integrated with, the SOCRATES targeting system.
