Today, about 50% of Montgomery County workers reside in the County, while 50% come from other jurisdictions. To maintain that 50/50 balance, more than 87,000 workers (50% of the 174,927 new workers needed between 2012 and 2022) will need to come from within the County.
According to recent analysis done some potential sources of additional workers include:
- Upskilling current workers through continuing education and skills training (higher education, private sector, and nonprofits)
- Retaining older workers and recapturing younger workers who have left the labor force
- Targeting unemployed / underemployed workers for upskilling
Many employers are experiencing or anticipate greater difficulty finding applicants with the educational attainment and specific occupational skills required for available jobs. Education and skills gaps are of particular concern for high-demand, high-growth occupations.
